Windchill's Guestbook

a candle blown out way too soon
Your thoughts, prayers and well wishes are all printed out and kept in the barn with Windchill so don't think for a moment that you didn't make a different in the life of a quiet hero.. Thank you all so much for caring enough to write and call, as well as those who have sent donations to help with the cost of his care - you are all as much as part of Windchill's life  and story as we are and we are all very grateful. This guest book is part of the legacy Windchill leaves behind and will be preserved in his memory.

To Windchill, his friends and his caregivers: I have been closely following your struggles and this ordeal all week. As you now know, people care deeply about Windchill and about your efforts to preserve his life. I have been profoundly touched by his courage and your determination to give him a chance at the life he should have known from the start. I am a breeder, exhibitor and fancier of miniature Dachshunds. Through my extensive travels to various events and membership in both state and national breed clubs, I know all too well, the suffering and injustice that humans inflict on our precious animals. Three of the seven Dachshunds that live with me came by way of rescue from their previous homes and owners. I am now blessed with healthy, happy dogs and cannot begin to imagine the depth of your despair at finding Windchill under those horrible circumstances. I sent a $200.00 donation to Equine Allies on Friday for Windchill and will be glad to send more if his expenses are outstripping what has been collected. I cannot imagine all his needs but understand that they will be significant. I do not pretend to know anything about horses but am willing to help with anything that you might need. I am a pharmacist during the day at SMDC but can certainly offer help in the off hours. I know I am a complete stranger to you but my offer is sincere. Your ongoing account of your efforts and Windchill's condition and progress on your website are so meaningful to those who are concerned. It must be extremely difficult to keep that information current, given the tremendous workload you are carrying. I will continue to keep Windchill in my thoughts and hope that you can find the strength to continue to support him in his battle for his life. Kind Regards, Kathy Johnson 218-626-2090

Precious little Windchill: You have touched so many lives with your courage and determination to live. Just like our Precious Barbaro, you have brought a band of people together that have "hearts of gold"....hearts that love all animals and will do anything and everything to help those that cannot speak for themselves. I will continue to light candles and say prayers for you 24/7. May you feel the love and healing light that your candles carry to you from those of use that "get it". I started this candle group for you on our Alex Brown Racing Forum...I hope other will visit to send more healing light and prayers your way.

It goes to the tune of the 60s song "Windy" by the Association: Who's standing up, defying all odds now Who's soaking up the hugs and the love Who's cheering up a nation of horse folk Everyone knows it's Windchill And Windchill has sparkly eyes That shine as he tries and tries And Windchill has will to thrive He's quite a guy.... Who's gonna run and play in a pasture Frolicking merrily soon someday Who is the colt that legends are made of Everyone knows it's Windchill! Hugs from the Maricle family Bruno MN

You don't have to respond - just know that us horse lovers here in Tennessee are keeping up with what is going on up there. Thank you so much for the steady updates and pictures on the website. I guess my biggest question is if the owner is going to pursue her rights to ownership -- I'm gathering she hasn't come to visit yet. If it was me I'd be too ashamed to show my face anywhere around if I hadn't been there by then - Keep the faith and I'm glad to hear you all are accepting help as it is offered. You can't do it alone.

I am sooooo glad you are able to get up, if only a little bit every day. Every day you will staying up a little bit longer and you will be getting stronger and stronger. So glad you have those mares and that wonderful dog and cat to keep you company - in addition to the wonderful people.

As a vet tech, I know first hand the struggles and frustrations a person faces when dealing with a acutely injured animal. Every step forward seems like it's followed with three steps back, but eventually those forward steps turn into leaps and before long, Windchill will be racing through the fields acting like all of this is simply a bad dream. Jeff, you might not call yourself a hero, or even see yourself that way, but to those of us watching this story from a distance, you and those who are giving up home, comfort and warmth to take care of little Windchill, you absolutely are. It would have been so much easier and less heartbreaking for you to ignore the little guy or convince yourself it wasn't your problem, but you didn't...you stepped up and did the right thing, and that, in my opinion, is something that isn't done often enough these days. I know 'thank you' isn't enough to express my gratitude for how you're taking care of Windchill, but until they invent a bigger word, thank you will have to do. Good luck and God bless you and all the folks who are working towards helping this amazing little guy get his life back.

You are a remarbable little one - and so very fortunate to have found the other half of the human equation which values animals and will go the distance to make up for the other half. I know what it is to fight for a life and the incredible reward it is when you see someone who most definitely should not have made it at all at least get a fighting chance. Many many thanks to all of your "caretakers" as they haven taken care with you.

Windchill - The news of your standing brought me to my knees to say thank you for answered prayers. I have been captivated by your story - horrified by the thought of your solitary and desperate cries across the frigid pasture, grateful for those working tirelessly to give you a second chance, and amazed at your will to live. In your short life you have seen both the best and worst of mankind, first through neglect beyond comprehension, and now through round the clock love, nurturing and compassion. Please know that you will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. May your body soon become as strong as your spirit and may you never know cold, hunger or loneliness again. To all those who have been caring for Windchill, a heartfelt thanks. If there is anything you need beyond donations and prayers, please ask.

Windchill, you remind me of a little guy who came in to my life 5 years ago. He was frostbitten and very sick. He's black, like you! Well, I loved him and cleaned his nasty little nose and kept him in a warm stall with deep shavings. I sang to him and talked to him and sat with him in his stall. After 4 days he was looking good and feeling good and he grew up to be a very handsome and smart boy! He's 16.2 now and weighs 1600 lbs. The sweetest being on earth. He's happy and full of life and knows that his Mom saved him. He thanks me every day. I'm saying prayers for you, Windchill, and I know that God has angels all around you to keep you safe and give you the strength to keep trying. With each day you will get stronger and stronger. Soon, you'll be kicking up your heals as you trot with your tail in the air! I love you, sweet boy! I'm sending many angel kisses your way. Faye in SC

To Jeff Tucker and Windchill’s wonderful caregivers: There’s a story about an old man on a starfish-littered beach, flinging one starfish after another back into the ocean. A young man walks by and scoffs, “Why even bother? There are too many for you to make a difference.” The old man flings another starfish into the water and says, “Made a difference to that one.” The number of starfish on the beach may rival the number of horses who are left to forage for themselves because of farm foreclosures, lack of hay, or simple neglect. But you made a difference to one of them, Windchill. Thank you for saving this little star and for being such kind, compassionate people.

hey little buddy: I know that you are going to be OK and grow up to be the biggest horse on this farm. God told me this. He is this really cool guy in the sky that supervises the earth and helps the good people help the animals. When you were resting your big old horse head on my shoulder yesterday I knew there was no other place on earth I was supposed to be except right there with you to hold up my friend Windchill. I'll come back again whenever I can. I've been running faster because I have a horse in my spirit now and my miles are for you my buddy, pretty soon you will be running your own miles. It is a truly extraordinary experience to be your friend. I love you and pray hard for you always. your aunt suzy. uncle archie loves you too.

Best wishes Windchill and the crew at Raindance Farms! When I was in middle school my wish came true to own a horse, but I not only received one horse but two! Our family had rescued two of nine horses near our home that were severly neglected. My mare and gelding went on to be wonderful companions to all that knew them. Their vet was also Jamie Meagher, who I still think very highly of. Keep up the great work! The world needs more people like the crew at Raindance Farms.

Shortly after I heard about Windchill's story I wrote a poem and sent it to Kathi Davis. Kathi sent it on to other concerned horse people who then printed it with the idea of posting it in local feed stores, vet offices, etc. to generate interest and donations for Windchill's care. I thought that this would be another good avenue to reach even more people to keep the movement going forward. So please print this poem, post it where it will generate the most interest and feel free to email it to those you think would be interested. The Wind's Chill The wind is cold blowing across the snow I turn; head down, so that it is my tail that takes its blow I am cold and I am hungry, why don't the humans know I need food and I need shelter before my time runs out Or angels will soon come for me of this I have no doubt I'm just a baby horse, no voice nor any clout The darkness is descending drawing closer, closer still I no longer have the strength or the desire to fight the chill I lay upon the snow growing weaker; no purpose to fulfill Why is it that they leave me here, cold, alone to die Why is it that the humans do not hear my silent cry Busy with their human stuff, they just simply pass me by I did not choose the cold pasture where I was left to die You said you'd love me always but it was just a pack of lies You left me in the snow bank ignoring my weakened cries But God alone has seen my lonely, painful plight and sends his guardian angels to do battle in my fight They struggle with the elements as I keep them in my sight Held in their arms I am lifted and gently carried away to a place of warmth and love, where other horses play Where if I'm very lucky, a place I'll get to stay Even as I'm growing stronger, my fate is not yet known I no longer fear to face it; as I'm not facing it on my own I have gifts of love and kindness that to me you've shown Do not ever forget me, no matter how long that I am here There are others out there dying, alone they face the fear No one to hold or comfort them, no one to shed a tear This farm is called safe haven, my haven it has become Even if I lose my life, God's will, it must be done Guardians angels all of you, from heaven you did come Katie Allen Dedicated to the efforts of Kathi Davis and Jeff Tucker, Safe Haven Farm / Raindance Farm for the rescue and care of "Wind Chill", age 9 months.

We are so excited to learn that WindChill is making such wonderful progress. I've shared the story with my 5 and 7 year old children which has really touched us all. They asked about him right away this morning when they woke up and I will be so happy to report the good news back to them. I commend you for taking the initiative and responsibility to help in this situation when his owner did not. Your act of kindness has prompted others to get involved...it seems the "pay it forward" mentality is in full swing. The first thing I do each morning is check your website for an update and I appreciate you taking the time to do this knowing full well you are probably exhausted. While our family has no experience working with horses (just our beloved dog!), we are animal lovers. I'm sure you have had many visitors and if visiting is still an option, I know my kids would love to take a peek at the horse that has captured the hearts of many. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do!

Sunday morning I skipped church and spent it with Windchill. I sat alone with him on a hay bale, his lovely, loving head in my lap. I took off my gloves, and laid my hands on his thin little body and we prayed. I asked God to send His healing energy into this sweet, forgiving little horse. I seriously felt the huge energy of His Spirit flow through my body, out of my hands, and into Windchill. I now know it was coming from all of your prayers. I am only a bit player in all of this: the heros are those people putting in many hours a day with Windchill. But he has touched me in places that needed work, humbling me with my ridiculous concerns. I watch him quietly and patiently submit to the ministerings of his caregivers, and so determinedly try to be a real horse again. Thank you, Jeff and Kathi, for letting me share Windchill. And thank you, my husband Gary, for doing the "real stuff" to help. Windchill's leaves me without words, something many people have tried to do for a lot of years.

I am so, so proud of all of you for valuing Windchill's life so much! It is so cool, and I wish I was a part of this story. It would make me cry to see his life championed, I am sure. Thank God you were all stubborn enough to say, "He will not die - we will not put him down. We will preserve his life." Blessings to you all! Our Father looks down on you and says, "Well done, good and faithful servant." Warmly, Laurie Johnson

When I first saw the article about Windchill, my heart just sank . . . I could only think of Barbaro and how attached I became to an animal I had never met. I instantly said a prayer in hopes that Windchill could be the one to pull through and beat the odds of his initial diagnosis. I once had a beagle that was caught in a trap in zub zero temps for several days. She had disappeared, we looked all over and who ever had the traps set, obviously wasn't checking them like they were supposed to or she would have been released within a day. She unfortunately had two feet (opposite front/back) frozen completely solid and after a valiant fight for 10 days, ended up losing any circulation we had hoped would come back and had to be put to sleep. I was so thankful for the vet that was willing to try what she could, the rest was in God's hands. It sounds like if anyone can beat the odds, it will be Windchill with his fight and determination. I laughed outloud when I saw that once he was up, he wasn't going to lay back down and slept standing up! What a trooper! Let's all continue to give our support through prayer and donations of time and money. Thank you for keeping us updated through this site, I am checking it daily in hopes I will only be reading more positive news! God Bless everyone involved!

Yesterday you rested (earlier in the pm), and I'm sorry I missed your arising in the evening. Way to go!! It certainly felt like you were going to tell everyone it was not going "to take a week". You were saving your energy and building your determination yesterday for the grand event last night. What an amazing creature you are! As are your rescuers! Thank you Jeff and Kathy and the other who were there that night. And Kathi, I will be taking the mini-blanket back to Dan's F.B. Sat. as that is the closest time I am not working. Now that Windchill is up do you have a sense of what size he needs - 62 0r 64 like we discussed? It appears he has something for now but we all expect him to be growing, and maybe changing sizes almost weekly. I also have a supply from my own little horse herds, so let me know (people say I have my own little tack shop with just about anything a horse could ever need). Anyway let me know if their are needs here. I'll be bringing out more horse people with me on Sat. I bid you all, and Windchill warmth, rest and recovery. Betsy Molstad

WOW. What a wonderful story, well the survivor part, not the part that got Windchil into this situation. What you are doing for this guy is so great! It is great to see there are people, and it sounds like a lot that are chipping in and taking care of this little guy. I am sure you have vets and lots of people with experience helping you but if you have not given him any probiotics you should consider it. Check out this product at www.equerrys.com. It is AWESOME and will give him a jump start to get going again. You can give him the paste. Keep up the good work and I will be praying for you, Windchill and everyone helping out. God Bless You.

God bless you all. I have shared all of my life with a variety of animals, and so know the love that they can give. It was with the knowledge of death and loss that I first read "Windchill"'s story. I tried to insulate myself from the tragedy with the consoling thought that "at least he will not die alone". Now, to read of his daily success, and the perseverance of strangers... it makes me sob with relief! Thank God for all of you, and thank God for Windchill too.

Last night at midnight I was out with my horses. I was making sure if everything was o.k. since it is supposed to turn very cold again. I wanted to cry thinking of you windchill. My heart breaks when I think of how you were crying for help and you almost died without being heard. Thank god someone heard. I make sure the water in the heated trough stays warm. I give grain for extra warmth. They not only have a 3 sided shelter, they also have many trees. If I could have taken them in when it was bitter cold, I would have. I live a few miles from Raindance Farms, so I know how cold that weekend was. I truely hope you don't have to go back to your original owner. I hope the Tuckers keep you. I was unable to volunteer due to an operation I had, but I prayed for everyone involved. The rest of this message is for all who reads this site. I spent 2 years trying to get horses away from some one who was neglecting them. They never took the horses from this person, but she was made to move them to hopefully a better area. I found out from a deputy in douglas county that it is hard to get animals away from neglectful owners. We as citizen's need to take a stand and say no more. I once had 6 dogs due to abandonment. God bless all who have volunteered with windchill and all who stand up for all neglected and abused animals.

Bless everyone who saved Windchill. Jeff, you are a wonderful person. I had a Walker (sire was a Walker, dam was a QH/Morgan) for 32 years. I bought him in 1966 when he was 4 months old and he died in 1998. The most enjoyable, faithful and beautfil horse I have ever owned. He was 15 and a half hands and bright blood bay in color. I also had a classic App Mare, bang tail and very sparse mane, a great granddaughter of Joker B., App foundation sire. My mare died in 2004 at the age of 26. Raised 3 fine sons out of her, 2 by a registered QH and one by a registered App. But enough about my equines, but I do like to talk about them. I hope Windchill keeps on the road to complete recovery, he does seem to be doing very well. I will be waiting to hear if any charges will be brought against the owner or boarder of the colt. Thanks to you, Jeff, and to all the others who have helped in his rescue and recovery. Marie

Windchill...I know you have good chances as in 1961, I found a 6 month old filly that was frozen in the snow, as you were. The only difference being that she was infested with blood worms. My Vet, gave her a very slight chance of making it, but I made her a "stall" in my recreation room and with weeks of rehab, medication, good food and LOTS of TLC, she came out fine, with no lasting effects. The amazing thing is, she looked a lot like you. When I saw you, I immediately thought of her. We named her Lucky Chance. Good luck to you little guy and I will be checking back to read future reports of your increasing good health.

I cry and get so angry. I know he is good hands now and getting loving care. We have a cabin in upper Michigan and if not too far maybe I'll make a trip to see Windchill this summer.Thank you all so much.......Pam

Hang in the little buddy -"Wind Chill" Sounds like you have great care going for you. We're sending a check today, to help with your care. We love horses, we have 2 Qtr. horses and when we heard that someone could leave you out in the cold like that, we just couldn't understand and wanted to help. My horses, in the east part of San Diego, CA, have a barn they can come and go and I put a rain blanket on them, because I was worried it was cold and rainy here, and it's 45 degrees! It's not fair, you have to go through this, people can be horrible to animals. But it sounds like you have lots of good people there for you. Please do whatever you can to save this precious colt.

Dearest Wind Chill, I have already learned, along with your 'daddy', that I must learn to spell your name correctly...see, I spelled it the right way. Now to get down to business. You are in my prayers every moment of each day and night. You've had a tough beginning to your life...but now the world knows about you! And with The Lord's help, and Jeff and Kathi and all of the loving and caring folks tending to you in your community - the world continues to wonder about you and what you might be doing each momemt of the day. We would take a minute-by-minute update if we could (and you would never get any rest)! Many of us more-or-less 2 legged creatures would not know about you had Barbaro, a wonderful horse that lives in heaven now, not brought us together while he was sick a little over a year ago. He lives in a beautiful home now called heaven, but I don't think he thinks it time for you to be living with him yet. I think he thinks your time right now should be spent on earth with the people you have come to know as loving you so much. While the whole world cheers you on---you must never give up. You have a hard road ahead of you, but God-willing, and with so many 2 and 4 legged creatures helping you...each day you are with us makes you more of a miracle. We know you are smart and very willing to work with your frens there at the 'Farm'. Keep up the good work and let your caretakers guide you. The Lord is working through them so that you may live a wonderful life---and you have so many fans from so many places supporting you every step of the way. God bless you dear little one. Try to move when you can so that your body is nourished with blood and begins to develop strength and muscles again. I know...it is sooooo cold. But, the hearts of everyone around you are warm. Soak in that warmth and take in all that love and just go for it; do your very best. And, you know Wind Chill, I know you have been and are already giving your chance at life your all. You are a very brave boy with much determination. God bless Jeff and Kathi and all those frens who are so willing to give you everything they can to care for you. You are so loved now-the awful people that left you in such a bad way should be punished by the proper authorities. But, forget them now. Be positive. You cried out for help in your last moments of life and some special people heard your call. Let all of us who have fallen in love with you, and our God, lift you up. Take one day at at time and let us pray for you Wind Chill. No matter what, know you are one of God's very, very special creatures. And, there are some very special folks surrounding you that will take care of you forever. When the summer comes and the weather is hot, we will all be able to smile as we call out your name, 'Wind Chill'! And those spectacular days will be here before you know it. Stay bright, special boy...and keep on munchin'. We all have faith in you. And if someone needs some kind of help there or just wants to chat...let them know to contact me. I come from Iowa, and that is pretty close to where you live. (My family had many horses years ago as I lived in a family-run hotel and the horses helped people move around from place to place. Those horses were loved dearly.) And I do know how 'pretty' COLD the winters can be in the midwest. But, like I said, the spring and the summer will come...but first, we have to make an effort for 'today'!!! With heartfelt wishes and the best of luck and many prayers for all of you- Love, Candice GET WELL, WIND CHILL!!!

Hi, I wish I could do more, but all I can do is send prayers and a big Thank You for everyone taking care of one of God's creatures. I wish people would use common sense and realize if they cannot take care of something they should sell it or give it away. I wish their was a way to put some controll on the back yard breading.

Dear Jeff/Kathi and frens: Jeff, you did a fine job on FOX. I understand all of you must be exhausted yet worrying every moment about that little 'kid'. It is obvious to all how caring you are and that you are giving 100% for Wind Chill. I think he is giving his all too. The rest is up to you know who! I tend to read and pray more than post and am an avid fan of Barbaro and the causes developed by him and his wonderful and steadfast group. Work keeps me from being as involved as I would like to be but I will have my day. Meanwhile, prayer and the power of strong thought is my greatest offering. My husband and I have tended to the very sick (both 2 and 4 legged creatures...sometimes there really is not much difference!). Some have been at the end of their lives and some at the beginning of their lives. Quality (time and care) is of the essence, and we were victorious in some cases and sometimes we could just offer support...because in the end, our God seems to have his own agenda. But, you do worry, minute by minute, and you just want to control everything to make all be right. We were granted one victory with a little boy that happened to also be a cat...and he was given a 0% chance to live. He was our love of a lifetime and he spoiled us like on one ever could (probably) again. He was a very special gift. His name was Puffy and he could fill a book with stories relating to his life. So, I say, 'go for it' - and keep up the good work. You have many friends supporting you that know you are giving erverything you can to save a wonderful life. And, Wind Chill knows it too. Hope you find more 'space' - I am sure you should be able to. You have found yourself the center of attention...good caring folk with a deep cause and that little boy, such a looker and so brave - you'll continue to be 'hit' with many messages I am sure. Would love to hear from you, but, do not worry, what is important is that you get rest when you can and that you remain healthy and well and sane as you care for your dear Wind Chill. Best always, Candice

Dear Windchill, Litttle buddy, last summer our little dog, Sassie, was very old and sick. She was blind, deaf and could hardly get around. My daughter came by to see her and she told Sassie that she made her heart hurt. A few days later Sassie's little body gave out and she went to play in Heaven. My heart quit hurting for her and I was happy that she wasn't in pain and suffering anymore. After seeing your story on Fox I want to tell you that my heart hurt for you at first but now it feels wonderful. I know you are going to make it and grow up to be a great horse and a joy to be around! Have a wonderful life and a happy heart! Stan Franklin

To Wind Chill, What a strong spirit you must be... to not only hold on long enough in that cold and windy pasture for someone to come to your aid, but also to trust humans again after having been so badly neglected. But these folks, these are the ones who do care, the good people worthy of your trust and love. And to all of you at Raindance Farms working so hard to keep Wind Chill alive and help him recover from the atrocious experience of hunger, thirst, neglect and cold: you guys and gals are the true heroes of this world, fighting for those who cannot speak for themselves or help themselves. Keep up the good fight, that foal appreciates every bit of your efforts. And don't forget that time spent with animals is added to your life :-) Many good wishes from the tropics to all involved , especially Wind Chill - how I wish I could send you up some heat...

Hey, I saw you on Fox & went right to my 'puter to check on Wind Chill. You did great on TV by the way. I'm still worried about Wind Chill internally... I just remember hearing that sometimes when people/animals are rescue from freezing water/drowning that they must be "thawed" from the inside out I think? 'Course this probably isn't the same since he wasn't under water. I'm sure all that's been addressed & it seems it's been long enough now since he was rescued. I'll probably worry till he's running! If you think you were nervous on tv you should try being stuck in a dishwasher in front of a couple million people LOL like I was on the pilot of Amer. Fun. Home Videos. I love reading your posts and I'm very glad someone like you was there for Wind Chill, I just wish the same was true in the cases of sooo many other horses/other animals who are neglected and abused every day. I'm all about animal rights/welfare do rescue myself and am too familiar with heartbreak, Wind Chill already has a happy ending because "he knows he's loved..." In case there is a God, I'll pray for you all... I certainly argue with Him enough, I'm afraid the abject cruelty I see by people of all faiths & no faith has caused me to pretty much forsake my own Christian faith. I think I've "back-slidden" to far to find my way back, but I do wish you everything fine in this world. And thank you for Wind Chill, human decency may not be as rare as I thought, at least he'll never end up in the back of a truck headed to a slaughter house in Mexico. Hang in there, you're doing a good thing. P.S. Oh, is there a heater of any type in the barn? If you thought one would help I'm sure the donations would come in, and it may be something that would really help him. They have a lot of very safe ones that are used in a lot of rescue shelters. If you even mentioned it a company would probably donate a heater... just a suggestion, it's about 10degrees here but it sounds colder by you. Helen Wholf

Windchill, My husband, 3 yr old daughter and I moved to Duluth from Kansas City, Missouri a year ago and we are avid horse people. My husband's parents own 5 Morgan horses and we all ride and love them. They are more pets than anything, but that's OK. When I saw your story it made me cry - how dare people be cruel and leave you outside. These winters are so bitter and not fit for anyone - let alone a young horse - to be outside. You are a true inspiration and a fighter - I can see it in your eyes. The people that are caring for you are angels and I do believe everything happens for a reason. You were meant to be with these people. We are saying prayers for you and thinking about you. Please tell your angels that if you need anything, that they should call me at 218-355-0780 and we'll do what we can to help. Much love and strength to you! Lisa, Darren & Emily Bartlett

Windchill, watching your progress with much excitement. What a family you have moved into! Having spent many a day/night with my horses over the years I know firsthand how tired your handlers are, but also know how dedicated they are.You have come a long way since these angels found you, and as the days/nights creep by you are slowly gaining strength.You must be so proud of your staff, I know I would be.Humans find strength when they don't think they have any left, and they can sometimes do without sleep for long periods of time.My own Appaloosa lived to be 33 years and 3 months of age, and in his last years I sometimes slept in his feed bin.I certainly was glad to wake up when he would start pushing around for food, which ment ,yep, he'd made it thru another night. My prayers for you, and your handlers are on their way!

I just want to say thank you to all those who rescue and volunteer and rush to help abandoned, neglected, and abused animals. I have seen so many people abuse their animals that it really lifts the spirits when you hear of someone working to save these animals. Almost all of my animals have been from abandonment or abusive homes.I have watched animals be starved near death and beaten and the authorities do nothing. PLEASE for the sake of these animals, contact your DAs, sherriffs' depts, humane societies and tell them this is enough. These animals are some of the best friends you could even imagine to have.

I was heartsick when I heard about Wind Chill. I grew up with horses and had a little mare that was half Appaloosa. Thank you so much for being the caring wonderful people you are. I'm praying for Wind Chill and for you. Give him another kiss on his little soft nose for me.

Wind Chill last night I read through all the get well messages that people have sent to you. Do you realize that you have messages from as far away as Hawaii, the Caribbean, and Germany? Your story has touched everyone. The FOX story was excellent, Jeff. You were definitely able to get Wind Chill's story out there. All of us at KAP Farms in Poplar are praying for you and your new family. Our burros, Earmuffs and Festice, even send you a "eeeyaheeeyah". We told all our animals about Wind Chill and there even is a picture of you up in the barn standing proud. We all hope that you are getting better every day and enjoy the updates on the website. Green grass will be under your hooves in no time. We love you Wind Chill. Katie & Keith and the rest of the 4 hooved animals(Earmuffs, Festice, Clover, Samy, Dolly, Fern, Rex, Sage, Simon, Rodney, Benny, Maple, Dexter, and our newest addition, LUNA, born on the night of the lunar eclipse 2/20/08)

May God be with you Wind Chill. You have deeply touched my heart. I have been around horses all my life except for the past 10 years. I have been wanting another one and hope to get one this summer. My sister has tennessee walkers and I have been wanting a walkaloosa like you. You see, I had an appaloosa when I was younger and him and I were best of friends. There wasn't anything that horse wouldn't do for me. I ended up having to put him down because a hunter shot him. Well, so much for me. You my little friend are in my prayers. What I would give to have a little one like you. I am sorry that some people have to be so cruel. I do hope that justice comes out of this and that you make a full recovery (which sounds like you are heading that way)and grow to be a beautiful horse. I have sit here and cried alot of tears for you and said alot of prayers. You keep fighting! and never give up. Sounds like you are getting great care. You have alot of people that love you.

I wish I could put into words the feelings that I am overcome with when I think of your streangth and courage to pull through these times. Well I feel really silly talking to a horse through a computer that I'm sure neither of us understand and I'm sure you can't read the little letters on that screen but if someone there will read these words to you I feel sure you will know just what I am talking about. I hope to meet you in person someday but until then know that I love you as big as the sky and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Oh by the way let that jerk that left you out in the cold all alone know that what comes around goes around and his will be coming. God Bless You, Johnny Rasmussen

I will always pull quietly for you from the corner of the barn & am looking forward to the day when you can throw Walker's plastic milk bottle for him - or at least play keep-away as a payback for all those licks. Keep up the good work for us when we have to hoist you each night. It'll work out in the end. Tucker & Emma, our dogs, really love your smell and are pulling for you too. You're a great little horse. I see you growing into a great big horse.

Is it any wonder that God sent Kathi and Jeff to rescue Wind Chill? I recently heard a dying man say that the most important parts of receiving forgiveness are admitting the mistake, trying to make it right, and not doing it any more. I believe that Wind Chill's former owner has done those things. God bless you Jeff and Kathi, for your loving, forgiving spirits, and Gary and I join you in this also. Helping Windchill has allowed us to meet some of the finest human and equine beings I could imagine, for which we will always be grateful. I wish you all could meet "our" litte boy, Windchill. I've always been a "dog" person (used to show them, etc.), and find the quiet spirit and wisdom in the trusting brown eyes of Wind Chill to be beyond words. I'm honored to be part of this. Thank you all for joining me.

When I heard this story while driving and listening to Fox News a few days ago, I nearly went off the road because of tears blinding my eyes. I am a horse lover. I had the joy and privilege of owning a horse when I was child, a wonderful Morgan/Shetland mix named Cimarron. He was my joy. I’ve been horse-crazy all my life. Wind Chill’s story tore my heart out. I’m thankful for Jeff Tucker, the people at Raindance Farm and all those who dropped everything to help this little colt come along and are still by his side. Horses are our companions and helpers. I haven’t heard the story of our Wind Chill’s owners came to abandon him in such frigid, raw conditions, but I hope they pay a severe penalty such as jail time and a fine. I’m pulling for Wind Chill. I wish I could be there to give him bits of apple and carrots, but I’m sure there are plenty of people there to spoil him along. Thank you Mr. Tucker for giving Wind Chill a loving and nurturing home.

I am checking in for my daily update on Wind Chill. I have owned horses most of my life and have just come back from my barn where I met the farrier and had my horses shoes reset. I was thinking of how I take care of my horses and thinking of some of the neglected horses I see in fields and wonder why the people that own them won't take better care of them. I now wake up every morning and know there is one lucky little survivor of neglect named Wind Chill. I hope there will be many more positive stories like his in the future. Thanks again to everyone involved in his rescue and loving care. "A horse, A horse, My kingdom for a horse" P.S. Jeff, I love your website!! Nancy Sullivan Tellico Plains, Tn.

Hey, I am so happy to hear that Windchill is doing so well. He’s one tough little dude! And I have to say, I like the first spelling of Windchill the best. Names are spelled as they are, and your spelling of Windchill is a unique part of who the little guy is. After all, you are not reporting the weather, you are talking about him. I will keep Windchill in my prayers. Get well!

Wind Chill and his caregivers: You all are now added to my rosary circle and we will be dedicating a rosary a day to all of you! This of course does not include all the individual prayers said in your names. God and St Francis will know that we want to keep Wind Chill here with us and what happened before will NOT happen to him again. That we value all creatures. You all are giving such a huge part of yourselves and your hearts to this little horse you didn't know before the rescue. I applaud all of you involved in Wind Chill's care, and taking care of the rest of the horses, dogs, cats, kittens and others that are fortunate enough to reside there. Wind Chill, you rest, get your strength and stand and move when you can. Eat and gain weight, your worries from that other place and time are over! I looked out into my pasture today and watched as my Fjord was soaking up some sunshine, soon he was stretched out on the snow--sunbathing. I wish this for you little one, someday you will be able to stand the cold and appreciate the sunshine on your back, of course the spring/summer and fall are REALLY good! I am sending my donation Sat. (2/22) as my retirement check was just deposited. God bless all of you, Jeanne and Monty along with the cats, dog, the wild birds who empty the feeders at least once a day, from cold, but warmer, MI.

Windchill I think of you every waking moment and pray for you.I can"t help but get angry {God forgive me} at those that let you get into this situation. I am in dog rescue and know how animals suffer at the hands of humans. I am sooo sorry this has happened to you. But I believe that you will be able to give humans a second chance. These people who are helping you are WOnderful and I believe that their love and care for you and your strong desire to live will pull you thru this. God truly was watching over you. I will pray for you and continue daily to read your updates and look forward to seeing you running in the green pastures this Spring. Don"t give up lil one..It will break too many hearts to lose you now that you are learning true "Human Love". Linda

Please do not take the time to respond to this Email. I would much rather you take that moment to comfort Windchill.

Thank you so much for letting us know there are still really great people in this world. Kathi, I met you Friday at Northern Communities CU. And you are still my daughter's hero and of course mine too, even though you are to nice to realize the hero you are. I repeat thanks so much for all you are doing!

I'll be praying for you Windchill!! God bless all of you for helping this little guy. 5 years ago, my old mare died due to complications giving birth. She died within 2 hours of delivering a healthy filly. For the next 3 days, friends, family & myself, stayed in the Morton building, feeding Orphan Annie with a baby bottle every 2 hours. Since she only got about 8 oz. of that first all important colesteum, she took a turn for the worse. At 3 1/2 days old, we took her, in the back of a suburban, two hours away, to K-State Universary. She came back 2 weeks later, with a french alpine dairy goat. Besides feeding Annie every 3 hours, she would also nurse on Sandy, the goat. They lived in my garage for 4 months. I put them in the chainlink fenced backyard during the day. It was lots of hard work. Fortunately, Annie was born the first of April. I can only imagine how cold it is there and how cold all of you are. Good luck!!

My husband and I own 11 horses of our own and they are our babies. Nothing too good for our babies. We would be extremely pleased to help anyway we can. If there is any special way we can help and you could let us know that would be great. If not, in a day or so we will do a donation for Windchill. What a wonderful thing you are doing.

Hi again my little friend. I wrote you 2 days ago when I heard about your story, but I just wanted to let you know that me and my gang are still thinking of you many times a day. I am out in California visiting my grandchildren for the very first time. I have told them all about you and my little Jiovani(1 year old) just looks at your picture and babbles away. I know he is telling his guardian angel to fly to you and warm you up. God will make sure you get better. I just know it. He has great plans for you. For know, just fly on the wings of God and dream of spring fields to sail through with your new family, and the people too. God speed to you and thanks for all the love, hope, and spirit that you have generated in this world of so much less. Good night my little buddy.

Windchill, you have my constant prayers for a complete recovery. I know that it will take your patience, as well as your fierce will to live. I am glad that you are surrounded by animal friends and humans who care for you. For Windchill's human caretakers, including ALL the volunteers, 1. I have sent a small donation to Equine Allies and Dan's Feed Bin, to help with what will certainly be an enormous cost. I will try to do this repeatedly, because I know that the costs will continue. 2. Take care of yourselves. You will be better caretakers for Windchill when you are well fed, warm, and hopefully rested. I know that is easier said than done. I have been a volunteer at Minnesota Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, and I know the drive to do everything ASAP accompanied by the exhaustion and fear of making a mistake in caring for any animal. If there is anything someone can do from long distance, PLEASE let me know. 3. I live near the U of M Veterinary Clinic in St. Paul. If there is anything you need for Windchilll, and I can drive up to your farm to get it to you, PLEASE let me know. It will happen, if you ask. Peace, health and joy, Sara

The update this morning said you had been up all night and that was very good news. Being on your feet had to definitely help your circulation. Have your people been able to massage your legs or are they to sensitive for that. Stay strong and I will check on you tonight after I take care of my horses for the night.

Dear Windchill -- Before I say "good morning" to my husband, the first words out of my mouth are "How is Windchill doing this morning?" Reading your updates and viewing the pictures/videos always brings tears to my eyes. Your will to survive, all of our prayers, and the awsome TLC (tender loving care) that you are receiving will make you a WINNER! Soon, you will be basking in the warmth of the sun and romping in the fields enjoying life as it is meant to be. Your ordeal and the way people have responded has been an inspiration to all of us!! God bless you all. We love you, Windchill -- Karen and Tom PS -- A check is in the mail for yogurt, carrots, apples. Also, how about a Windchill t-shirt. I bet there are lots of people who would love to have one, especially me!

Morning Brave Little Wind Chill! I am happy to hear that the temperatures have gotten warmer up your way. And eating yogurt and standing up all night is such wonderful news! To your "Dad" and your growing army of caregivers a huge "Atta Boy!!!" It is people like yourselves that give us hope about mankind. Blessings to all of you!

Oh my gosh, Windchill! So many things to congratulate you, Kathi, Jeff, and your herd of caregivers on! I'm sooo glad that you and Kathi are now legally bonded! I'm sooo glad you gained some weight from your last visit with your vet (I would be very interested to know how much you are gaining each time she comes to check you out)! And I am so glad that many folks are donating money, time, and equipment for your care, and so many that are praying for your continued recovery! Congratulations on Jeff keeping your name as "Windchill" - all one word, and for Jeff's eloquence in writing the updates about you for us. And a BIG congrats on standing up overnight! You are just remarkable, Windchill! I particularly loved the pic of you visiting with the horse (Sunday) in the next stall over! Even with all of your new human loved ones surrounding you, I'm sure it must be a comfort to have one of your own kind nearby also! Continue to hang in there, Windchill! Sending lots of sunflower thoughts and heartfelt prayers for you, from Kathy, Cisco and Jazz (the two Tonkinese furballs) in Kansas

Windchill, I just saw your premiere on Windchillcam! Kathi and Jeff will have to set your footprints in cement like the stars in Hollywood. I know you're not out of the woods yet, but when the question of the day becomes is it Windchill or Wind Chill (I prefer the former), the darkest days have passed. What an amazing life you're going to have. I can picture you as a therapy horse, giving encouragement and inspiration to people who have seemingly insurmountable illnesses. And finally, a shout out to the Raindance Horses for embracing Windchill as one of your own. You could be like my mule, Sourdough, who hates when anyone else gets attention. Carrots and hugs to you all.

Hey, what a day for Windchill - looks like he has been up and around most all the day - the web cam is great!!!! And thanks for taking "if he lives" off the main page - it just put doubt where doubt is not needed. I stew about all our foals, watch the baby cam for days before and after they are born, and now am watching Windchill. You are doing a wonderful job. It gets long and hard - been there done that with sick foals in the dead of winter (ours aren't much nicer that yours). Keep your chins up - PRAYING for strenght for Windchill and his caregivers. God bless.

Jeff and entire group at Raindance, I don't think this little guy could get anymore love or hope than he is getting at anyplace else, even the most expensive and elegant of horse operations. His white blaze and patience and willingness to submit to what must be tough times for him remind me of another blazed fighter, Barbaro. I am trusting that Windchill keeps fighting and pulls though. Bless all of you, I know how tired you all must be and I appreciate the sense of humor with which you write, especially from Windchill's point of view. As an animal lover and young at heart person I get a big kick out of that. Good luck. Keep on keeping us posted.

She plans to come and see you again today. Sorry that your buddy Case had to leave, we will all miss him sticking his nose in your business.

Good Morning Windchill, I hate the fact that work is getting in the way of me being able to see you. I miss your sparkling eyes, soft nickers and velvety soft muzzle, that I love to kiss. Thanks for putting up with Ashley yesterday, she really enjoyed the extra time with you. She was very proud of the fact that you were still standing when she left. She plans to come and see you again today. Sorry that your buddy Case had to leave, we will all miss him sticking his nose in your business. Don't listen to the guy with the bad attitude, he has no idea what he is talking about, you are doing GREAT!! I love you and will see you soon, Lori

i, too, was worried when I checked for your morning update and there was nothing posted since last night. Kept myself busy for 15 or 20 minutes and there it was, the update. Thank you ;Lord for helpingthis colt. Keep him in your loving hands. As for the former owner we have to let go of any negative feelings and channel those into positives for Windchill. Thank you again to all of those who continue to help this creature of God's. Have a good day Windchill. Will check on you later

Woof-woof Windchill! Ever since my Mom heard about you, all she does is check her computer and watch you on the cam. I drop my ball at her feet and all she talks about is YOU! You must be very, very special!! I'd like to come play with Walker. We would have fun playing fetch. When it's Spring we can play and run in the green pastures. Get well soon and hope we can watch you on the cam today! Lick-lick to your nose and bark, bark to Walker!

Hi Windchill, I"am a four year old tenn.walker named Domino. When I was rescued at age 18 months I was fending for myself. Now I am a beautiful 4 year filly that will do anything for the people that saved and love me. I am black with a white blaze down my face. My tail drags the ground when I walk and my mane hangs 2 ft.below my neck. When I look at you I can see a younger me. I know you are loved just as much as I am, so I am sure you will make a fine colt. If you are every down Va. way maybe we could get togeather and ride the miles of trails I call home. I know my my two legged parents would like to see you. They think they own me but I am the one who cares for them more then they will ever know. Well its in the 50s today so Im going to teach them somemore human maners. Hope to see you on the trail. Take care, get strong, and remember we all love you.

Good morning Windchill, I hope you are resting comfortably as it is a little bit warmer outside. We can't believe you broke your standing record- way to go! Be sure to rest when you can. We were able to watch you on your webcam a little bit on Sunday, we really enjoyed watching over you and saw all of your new friends stopping by to visit. I think we even got to see your new friend "Bonnie" lower her head down into your stall a few times giving you words of encouragement. . it was very cute. Sounds like you have enough strawberry yogurt to last you a while, I will send money to Dan's Feed Bin and I hope you find something there you may like too. It is okay if you don't like the fancy stuff they want to feed you, I am a beer kind of girl too! =) But maybe you should try another taste because you need it to get stronger?! We send a BIG Thank You to your new family for taking such wonderful care of you and for keeping all of us posted on how you are doing. You have a wonderful life ahead of you with them! You have no idea how many hearts you have touched and that number keeps on growing. Stay strong and keep getting better Windchill! We love you!!

Jeff and all involved in saving this little guy, God Bless you all! I first heard the story from my Mom last week as she had seen a spot on Fox News about Windchill. So i did the obvious thing and went online. After reading articles i then went to your site and wow am i glad. First of all, you introduce the farm and all your pets as part of the family as they should be!! You sound like my family and how i was raised. I grew up with horses, my sister and her husband have mustangs, so we know how horses touch your life. We had a Aussie who loved one of our horses and Walker reminds me of her. We had a barn cat that would really rather be with the horses than any other animal. Anyway, we understand why you gave Windchill a chance. I have also become addicted to you Jeff and how you express yourself thru your words. You have such a big heart thank you for that! Thank you for loving animals, all of them! Thank you for taking so much time to let all of us see inside your life and Windchill's life. You all are in my thougts constantly. Stay warm and give Windchill a kiss for me on his soft little nose.

I seen the article in the Duluth News Tribune, I was so sad to hear what happened to Windchill. It's so disheartening to hear that this happens to animals, that it's easy to give up hope, but then people like you and everyone you've mentioned, give the ray of light that there is still hope, and have faith that things will get better, and that there are good people out there. Thank you so much for taking the time to post updates about what's going on, I tried to follow it in the paper but hadn't really been seeing much, so I researched a bit and found this site. My prayers go to you, family, and friends for the strength to keep up the fight and for Windshill to get the strenght to heal, both in body and spirit.

Have you thought about putting the videos on youtube.com? I think it's free and the videos can be up to 10 minutes in length---that might help you out with server space. I drive by nearly everyday and can't wait until I see Windchill (my favorite spelling) outside with your other "kids". Don't forget to take care of yourself while you're caring for the little man.

Life is a gift that the humblest may boast of And one that the humblest may well make the most of.

WOW - that's a tough decision! Both love and knowledge are key in his recovery. How far are you from the clinic? Are visits realistic? I remember reading the updates on Barbaro and thinking how much the staff where he was brought grew to love him. I know the same would happen with Windchill - look at all of us and we haven't even met him yet! Winchill, I'll continue to pray for your recovery. Jeff, Kathi and others, I'll pray for God to lead you in your decisions regarding Windchills future care! Also, will include prayers for financial assistance! Blessings, Mary

Dear Windchill -- Your update this morning has me in tears. Windchill, you are such a fighter -- it is going to be a long, difficult fight to get better, but you will do it. You have to do it. There is a reason God did not want you up "in the big green pasture". You were put on this earth, Windchill, to bring out the good and love in humans. You are always in my thoughts and prayers, Windchill. and your caregivers, too. Karen

Wind Chill, Jeff, Kathi and all caregivers: Sounds like you tired yourself out from the night you stood for so long. You know now that you are surrounded by caring people who are going to make sure you have water, food, grain, medicine (yup, that stuff), along with love and a warm stall and animal friends. So you can take some time to rest and let your body heal and gain strength. Maybe take the standing up in shorter periods of time, your legs need to support you and your body needs you to be able to stand. You have come so far and you still have a long way to go, so take it easy my little one, each day you are with us is precious and we want to measure your stay in years and years. I know you all will make the best decision for Wind Chill travelling to the vet. hospital. It will be hard not to have him in your barn and being able to give him your own special attention. It will be hard on 'us' not to have your updates. This has got to be hard on the hearts of all of you who have given so much of yourselves to see Wind Chill this far. God bless you in your decision. Let Wind Chill know if he goes to the hospital, that it is for what is best, that he is not being abandoned by his rescuers or his friends. I know you all must be getting exhausted, I cannot express my admiration that I feel for all of you in this undertaking. Angels walk the earth. Jeanne

Hi little one. Hope this morning will find you feeling better. I am hoping your legs will warm up soon. I pray for you, and please keep fighting. I know your Dad is wondering if you should go on a little trip to the big hospital. I hope they can come to you, cause you finally have a family who cares for you. You know that. You might get lonely and worry that you don't have a safe home anymore. But, everyone wants you to get better so if that is the ONLY way, maybe it would be best. I am hoping that help can come to you.

For some reason I dreaded signing on this morning. Is there heat in the barn? Maybe Windchill could take up residency in the house? I grew up on a farm and many times we had sheep, pigs, calves and little wild animals in our kitchen. I would be willing to take my vacation and spend two weeks with Windchill if I could be of help either there are the vets. Please let me know if you need me. I'm praying for you Windchill, don't give up.

dear jeff and caretakers: you are doing such a super job with the little guy. i know you all love him and are now struggling with sending him to the U. i wonder if his mental state at this point is what is going to help him get through. he finally has a good, caring family that will keep him safe. He has probably has NEVER known love and gentleness. If he has to go away would he feel abandoned? Will he feel alone? He is used to all of you being around. I hope today is a better day for him. Please give him a big hug for me. thank you all for your love and devotion

Get Well Windchill! Lots of people are pulling for you and praying for you. Keep your spirit up and always believe in miracles. I myself have seen the power of love to pull a sick animal out of despair. I adopted a young pup whom had Parvo and with a lot of love and a lot of help from his vet staff he is a healthy full grown wonderful boy. Miracles happen Windchill and we're praying for yours. To the caregivers of this beautiful animal i believe Windchill will grow to full potential and you will all reap the rewards of the love and time you have put into this amazing creature. Keep your spirits up, my prayers are with all of you also. You are all amazing people with enormous hearts. Love to all, Gwenn

Keep fighting. The will to live is strong. I lost my best 4 legged friend of 28 years, Zanzy, over a year ago (thank you, Jamie Meagher DVM for being there) & gave his friend, Abu, away as he was lonesome being the only horse so I am "horseless" now & I miss them everyday. Reading about you helps me. I should come visit sometime but I would probably want to take you home with me! Thank you for being there for me & keep on fighting.

Jeff, y'all are facing a tough decision. If ya had a child this sick you would want him to have the best care...as much as you have done..can you give Windchill the best help there on the farm? If the dreaded worst happens...you will be asking yourself..did we do all we could have. As much as I hate going to the hospital..sometimes that is the only option. Is there someone in your group of caregivers who could make the trip and stay during the recovery process? Y'all are tired and it is hard to make a decision when you are in that condition. Listen to the professionals and may the Lord guide you in your decision. You all are in my prayers.

Good Morning Windchill, just read the latest update. Both good and sad news that you may have to go to the hospital. If you do go, I hope one of your "peoples" can go with you. Maybe they can rotate each day so you always have at least one person you know with you in the strange place. St. Paul is only about 2.5 hours from Duluth, so it could be a day trip. I, along with many others, am praying for you little man. God bless you and your caretakers who love you.

Good Morning Precious Windchill- So you literally had an 'up & down' nite, Honey. Did you overdue the other day? Hopefully today you'll rest, eat & get up for @ least short periods of time. Your dad & mom are trying to decide if going to a hospital is best for you. What a decision they have on their hands! I think they may wait a few days before they decide to see how you're doing. So YOU will be the one guiding them in this decision as well as all the prayers being sent their way to help them decide. They will know what's best for you, Little One.

Jeff: Only you, Kathi and the volunteers know how much more you can do before you are worn out. Is there more medically that Wind Chill needs that can only be given at the Vet Hospital? You mention that Wind Chill slips in and out of depression, would the transfer worsen this since he obviously is attached to you, Kathi and 'his volunteers.' I cannot imagine the decisions you have all had to make to get Wind Chill to this point. I know you will all make the best decision for him. You all have gotten a very warm place in the hearts of many people as does this fighter you have named "Wind Chill." Continued blessings. Jeanne

Jeff--You have a tough decision to make. Certainly Windchill's best possible chance for life must come first and it sounds like the U of M can offer him that hope. But the little man has bonded with you and your crew of volunteers. Some of his will to live and spirit must be coming from his daily contact with you, therefore becoming a major factor in his struggle to survive. Is there any way you could take a leave of absence from your other responsibilities to go with him to the U? Then he could have the best of both worlds. Could your horse friends take over the care of your other animals while you were away? Can someone else step in and cover your business duties? I can't imagaine that the U would be able, or willing to move everything for Windchill's care to your farm---they must have other animals they're caring for---would they be short staffed at their facility if they sent someone here? Is there another facility closer to home that would work? Do you have a contact email for the U where we can send requests that they come here and care for Windchill? If so, please post it---otherwise I'll go to their site and see if I can find a link to post here. Mel

Windchill, Surely, the angels above wept when they saw you frozen and starved in that field....Those angels sent Kathi and Jeff to you. My heart was broken when I read your story. Please summon that "quiet determination" that Jeff speaks of that you have. Keep your spirits up and keep fighting. So many people love you and are praying for you. You have touched the hearts of many. May you regain your strength and live a long and happy life, knowing nothing but love. As a well respected man once said about another horse,"....if tears could heal...", you would be well and strong now. God bless you Windchill. I'm praying for you. Sandy K. in Texas

* Jeff & Windchil,.......Jeff, pl. realize there is absolutely no reason for you to make any apologies re: any update you post. Windchill's 'ups & downs' are our 'ups & downs' as well! As for any 'walls' you may have thought you had, to protect from an emotional roller coaster, I think Windchill broke down everyone's 'walls', immediately. When you wrote of any anger/ frustration you may have re: Windchill's condition upon being found, I, as well as so many, share those same thoughts & emotions. You are human Jeff even tho you are living @ a super human pace. You are a major part of why Windchill is even trusting humans! Pl. don't be so hard on yourself. You are tired, yet remain totally dedicated & loving. Windchill & we, thank you for ALL that you are doing. * Windchill, Glad your spirit was better today, Little One. Perhaps you needed the rest you got today. You've been having a lot of big days for such a little colt. Pl. rest, heal, eat,drink, get up on your ft. when needed & feel the warm love of so very many. Con't prayers being sent your way as well as for all your wonderful caretakers. Keep your spirit up, Precious One...it's an integral part of your personality! We know you are not out of the woods yet & probably won't be for a while...just keep taking baby steps!....xoxo

Your will to live and your exceptional spirit are going to make you one of the best horses that ever lived! I have prayed for you EVERY DAY, since I heard of your rescue, when Jeff talked to the folks on Fox News Channel. I have been following your progress on-line ever since (thank you Jeff & Kathi - you are AMAZING human beings), and I know you have to feel the love and caring feelings of sooooo many people surrounding you. I have never had the opportunity of owning or taking care of a horse, but have always respected the beauty and wonder of them! I volunteer at our local Humane Society and mostly foster kittens and cats. My sickest kitty (that I was going to adopt)my "Little Kitty That Could", named Rossie, only lived 3 months when his internal organs began to shut down and had to be put to sleep. He too had more spirit than I ever thought could come from something that small. YOU, however - are going to show all of us just how YOUR WILL TO LIVE is going to make you strong and live out a happy life, FULL of LOVE. You have WONDERFUL, loving people who care about you that are taking care of you. Work with them and fight with everything you have, little one!! You are loved around the world! May God bless you and give you all the strength you need....

Wonderful, wonderful, heart-warming story! I thank you for sharing. Windchill is a great name for a courageous little guy. I plan to send a small donation to you for Windchill's care. Thanks again for sharing his and your story. On a side note, I have been involved w/the Spring Valley (WI) Refuge Farm efforts thru my daughter-in-law's volunteer time there. Your rescues certainly equal those of Sandy and her volunteers and I applaude your continued efforts, as I do Sandy and her volunteers. Kudos to you and your crew for all you've done and continue to do for Windchill. We owe him and all of them that and more.

Oh my! I came upon this story quite by accident as a result of tracking another story in the Duluth News Tribune. Windchill, you are an amazing little colt! Thank God that kind, caring people found you in the nick of time. Though your story is one that causes a clash of emotions--anger and disbelief that someone could be so callous as to abandon you in such harsh elements, and the good emotions of compassion, love, and a deep appreciation and respect for life. As your circle of well-wishers grows, so will your strength. Love conquers all dear, little Windchill. In no time at all you'll be stretching those long legs and froliking in the warm, sun-drenched pastures. If it's possible that a courageous horse could give a bit of his strength and courage to another, I believe that the great Barbaro looked down at you, little Windchill, and softly breathed his great breath into your weak but determined body. Thanks to everyone who contributed to your rescue and care. Get well, Windchill! We're praying for you! "Until one has loved an animal, part of his soul remains unawakened". ~Anatole France

I"ve been getting up every morning and seeing how the brave little spirt is and enjoying your dialogs. This morning I was a little down after reading your morning notes and a little depressed. I then rememberd my daughter who had a eating disorder and what they told us. When they are that malnourished the food they recieve will first go to all of there organs and replenish them so there is now way after 2 weeks you would see any weight gain. However what you are seeing is a will that cannot be crushed and a spirt that won't be stopmed out. Keep up the great care and know that our Postitive thoughts will always be with you.

Jeff, Kath and all, You know how hard it is to read with tears running from your eyes. I have always been such a softy when it comes to animals and Windchill is now exception. I watch Animal Planet and most of those stories make me cry, my dogs, even our squirrels in the yard we feed all winter just would break my heart if something were to happen to all of them. I am sure everyone else feels as I do, your head tries to tell you that things might not work out but your hear won't let you build a barrier against the possible hurt. Keep on doing all you can and all of us will hope and pray and cheer you on. Most of all keep your good sense of humor, I'm sure that helps Windchill as much as anything. He has an amazing spirit.

Hey there, Windchill. I hear you're sad because you don't understand why you suffered the life you had before Jeff & Kathi rescued you. It's sad beyond imagining, but animals all over the world suffer terribly, from Raccoon dogs in China to pack mules in Afghanistan. God holds their suffering in his palm. Pro 12:10 A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal, But even the compassion of the wicked is cruel. You may not know it Windchill, but your suffering is known by our Father, and He will make it worth more than gold. His Son suffered for the world - Windchill, that includes you and those who've hurt you. Heal, forgive, and grow strong Little Braveheart!

Good Morning, Jeff, and of course, Windchill -- Your morning update has made by day -- it is only 5:04 am here in California. Last night my husband and I held hands in bed and prayed for Windchill and for you to make the right decisions regarding Windchill's care. Our prayers were answered! Windchill is certainly better with you and all the people that surround him with their love. There is a reason why Windchill hung-on to life waiting for YOU. It would have been far easier just to close his eyes and go to "sleep". WINDCHILL ROCKS!! We back you 110% and wished everyone shared your beliefs. Thank God for people like you. Another donation will be coming to you for some extra special treats for Windchill-- Thanks again for making our day!! Karen and Tom

Good Morning to Windchill and all! I must admit I am so glad to hear of the decision to keep Windchill at your place Jeff. I just can't imagine him getting any better care anywhere else, and I think that the "love" factor plays a bigger part than any of us know. No doubt you are all getting very tired from the routine and the stress of this whole ordeal, but I'm sure it lessens when you see even a very small improvement in him, or when he "talks" to you. No doubt everyone has an opinion on what you should do, but I'm glad you make decisions on what you are seeing and feeling by being up close and personal to the situation. Thank you for taking the time to update like you do, it seems there are many people like myself, who are checking their computers many times a day...just to see... Blessings to you, Kathi, and all the crew, and especially to Windchill.

No need to respond. I have been following Windchill's story for about a week now. Each morning I check to see how he's doing (and how you all are doing, too). This has restored my faith in humanity. So many good people working so hard to help this magnificent animal survive incredible odds. What lessons you all teach me each and every day. I am feeling an incredible amount of anger at the people who allowed this to happen in the first place. I know this is not the time and place to deal with this, but I do hope there will be some kind of . . . consequences for them. Windchill, you've got a lot of people standing with you. Don't give up your fight. You are a special horse who has touched the hearts and lives of so many of us. You give me the courage to face the small challenges I face. Keep fighting! And we will fight with you.

Good Morning Windchill, Jim and Caregivers. I was so happy to read the post from last night and this am. I know we have so far to go, but each glimmer of hope helps. I know lots of people are giving their opinions. We all know you have already thought of these various ideas people are throwing out. I think it is because we live so far away and feel so very helpless. I think we feel like we are part of Windchill's life and want to be there too to give our love and caring hands. I know you all have been going on very little sleep and are under a great amount of stress. I wish I could help with that too. I so admire you good people who do it because you care. Jim, you say your no expert, but you all are experts in giving your whole heart in love. God Blees you all. God Speed to you Windchill. Glad you were feeling a little perkier. Keep on munching!

Good Morning Jeff, Windchill, and all the Friends. You guys are doing such a great job! Jeff, as a fellow horse owner and lover, I love your updates with all the personality. Windchill, Keep up the good work, it's hard, but, we all have our ups and downs...sometimes all I wanna do is nap and be covered up with a blanket too. Take your vitamins little buddy, you need them to keep up with the progress you want to make and are making. It's hard not to be angered by what has happened to you, but, it's better to put it in the past and keep moving forward. Like they say in horse training, if something makes you angry, smile through it. Anyway, have a good day everyone!

I will try to say this nicely, but as you are, I am upset if people are giving you a hard time for letting us know the reality of Wind Chill's condition. I know we all have freedom of speech (including you) and that includes them too. However, it is too easy for some people to be "arm chair quarterbacks" or otherwise "Know-it'alls." You are the one who is putting your time and love into this colt and I think that gives you somewhat more rights than the rest of us, and this includes your frustration, disappointment in others that led to this situation, etc. You do not owe any of us an apology for letting us know how bad you felt, however, I'm sure you have learned a hard lesson to be more watchful on who you "confide" in. Good luck, God Bless, and thank you for all you are doing for this little colt we have all fallen in love with!!

To Jeff and all the caretakers, I am extremely happy to know you have decided for Windchill to stay at home and continue his recovery. In my opinion, no medical facility can replace the unconditional, dedicated love you have given him. When I read one of the earlier posts from the parent of a child with an eating disorder, it makes complete sense to me that his body would heal from the inside out. My biggest encouragement is that Jeff, Kathie and all who are directly involved are listening to the advice from the professionals, but taking direction from God's Holy Spirit. When we listen to those undeniable inner promptings, we make the right choices. Windchill is a living miracle with no scientific explanation as to how he survived his ordeal and how he still lives today. I think we all can agree that God no doubt has a hand in all of this. Bless you Jeff for trusting in that and taking a stand for what you believe. I feel Windchill will be a living testimony of the power of belief and prayer. I'm still praying for all of you daily and keeping up with the updates. Please give Windchill a hug and kiss for me. He means so much to us all. xxoo

Jefferey, I check Windchill's progress every day, and I am impressed..with his BARN CREW!! His staff, you guys are second to none.In the cold, with the public in and out you guys are consistant in his care. I know what a chore it is to try and remain 'normal' with all this going on around you.I know how hard it is, caring for him in a cold barn, been there done that, but his barn is warmed by the love each of you are showing him. I spent 33 years with an Appaloosa gelding, and toward the last days of his life he was so dependant, and the love he showed me for those 33 years continued until he drew his last breath.The time,money, memories erased all . He gave me far more than I ever gave him.I just made sure he led a comfortable life, just what you and your family, and friends are doing now.My prayers, and a small donation are all I can give, I will continue to pray for his recovery, and will never forget what great people you all are!

Good Morning Baby Windchill, Jeff, and all the volunteers!!!! What wonderful news this a.m. that Windchill is in good spirits and continues to fight on. His will to survive is indeed a miracle-there is no other explanation!! Being in the medical field, and caring for very sick patients, I have seen that it a person's attitude & will to get better that is the most important thing to their healing and survival. Secondly, it is their family's and friend's love & support and prayers. And thirdly, the medical care. Windchill has all three. You all are doing a incredible job and know how tired you all must be. Please take care of you too. I am glad Windchill has you. Continued prayers for you all.XOXOXOXO for Windchill from me!!!!

Kudos to Windchill and Associates for setting some boundaries for all of those who love the little guy and want to offer support. The ICU nurse in me had to turn off the barn cam watching the steady stream of visitors last weekend. Love and support are essential for healing, but so is rest - not just for Windchill, but for those who have been caring for him around the clock. As a nurse I've had to gently turn away many, many well meaning visitors when patients just need some peace and quiet to rest and recover. Hopefully Windchill will have a long, long life in which to greet his adoring public once he is strong enough to be able to walk away when he's had enough. He is just a baby who has a lot of healing to do and I hope folks respect your boundaries and give Windchill and his great care team the space and peace to achieve his miraculous recovery.

Good morning Jeff, Crew and especially Wind chill. What an uplifting update this morning. My favorite people are cowboys. They love God and country and tell it like it is. We would have to "walk a mile in your boots" to know what you are really going through. I know when we go out on 6-8 hr. trail ride several days in a row my horses are very tired for a couple days after. Wind Chill was probably just "pooped" after standing for so many hours and just needed to rest. If all his body functions are working good and he is eating and drinking I think he is going to come out of this, but it's just going to take time and will be a long winding road with lots of ups and downs. My husband says he just ran out of gas and there was no reserve to draw from and it took him some time to refuel. Nancy, Tn

Good morning from Quebec Canada ! Wishing Windchill a good day! You are a lucky little one to be surrounded by loving, caring and capable people! I've been checking in on your daily progress notes and Jeff I would like to just remind you of that old saying "if you want to get criticized - just do something!!" Also all of you must being getting pretty tired and the more tired we humans get the greater the worry and anxiety can become - and as humans we are then often inclined to react by getting ticked off or downright angry ! It's normal !!So keep on doing the next "best" thing - day by day and try to ignore the ignorant flack that comes your way! I am continuing to keep Windchill and you all in my thoughts and prayers - Best Wishes to you all Helen (no reply necessary!)

GOOD MORNING WI! Jeff, we all get angry over what happened to Wind Chill, today when I was cleaning stalls and the barn, my hands and feet got cold, really cold, it made me angry that while it was temporary, that someone left this little guy to die!! Didn't care about him, toss some hay, have water out but not check to see how each horse under their care is doing, or if they are down....well, one was down. So with all the work you have to do to save this little guy and an uncertain future, you and your crew have every right to feel anger, get depressed and especiall when you think Wind Chill is 'at least a 1, and he doesn't even make it to a 1' what makes us all human is to have a range of emotions. I commend you for keeping up with everything you have to do and still find time to post here. Bless you, Kathi and all who are helping. Wind Chill, you eat those groceries and drink your water, soon winter will loose its grip and the sun will warm your back. God sure knows that we love all of you! Jeanne

I have to say you & all of Windchill's care giviers rock!!! I know he appreciates it. As far as the ups & downs. We raise boer goats & it is always up & down when they are sick. We had a buck that we went through the ups & downs for about 4 months. It was agonizing. I saw a ranch by the name of roll a coster ranch a few months ago. I thought to myself that name is the most fitting name I can think of for anybody raising anaimals. You always have the ups & downs. You are doing a awesome job of caring for the little fellow!! Above all else do not forget it that! Just trust your heart to let you know what to do for him. Your heart told you yesterday where he needed to be to get the best care & you are right. He would get more Medical care at the university but the real care that will pull him through this, he will only get with you & all of your helpers! Believe it or not your care is giving him the strength to fight just like his reactions are giving you & everyone the strength to fight for him!! God bless you & all of the people trying to help!! Wish I was closer tecause I would be there in a New York minute! Laughing at the highs & crying at the lnows right along with all of You!! God's speed to Windchill & his caregivers!!!

You need to continue following your gut regarding the little guy's care. You all are right - he has survived because of you and would be devastated without you caring for him. Love IS his most important medicine. I know you get a lot of unknown people's opinions and mine is one more. But I am a registered nurse and worked for many years as a licensed veterinary technician. I have seen many species in pain and sick, but the miracles occur with the ones that are loved. Keep loving him and we all are praying for him AND for warmer weather. Take care.

Little Windchill, I check several times a day to see how you're doing. I am pleased to see you appear to be doing as well as can be expected in this short time of you Delivery from the Great Unknown. But whatever happens in the 'Windhill Experience', I think all of us -your friends- can come away with 2 important truths: There are wonderful people in the world, some right there around you, who love you and are doing everything in their power to keep your recovery proceding apace. And secondly, there are kind-hearted and caring people from all over the world and all walks of life who have heard of you and are now tuned into lifting you up to recovery in any way they can. That farm, that place where you now live will always have an aura of caring and love around it. I pray you will remain there to enjoy that aura for many years. We all love you, Windchill.

Wind Chill, Jeff, Kathi and all the crew/volunteers: First thanks so much for the new photo's, they show a much happier, improved Wind Chill. From your lastest post, if you are getting private emails that are anything less then supportive for what you have done, and how you are doing it, then I say shame on whoever they are for NOT posting on the Guestbook and leaving their names/emails and state. I hope that no one threatening any harm to you or Wind Chill. He is under Kathi's and your care and protection. Contact your friends at the sheriff's dept. Wind Chill is doing wonderful in the loving surroundings, you have medical advice for him. Perhaps one of the factors that is helping Wind Chill is that he is in a 'backyard barn' that has a good exchange of air, he has other horses around him, the love of a good barn cat and his dog friend...who knows, but whatever it is, it is working. I am in awe of all of you. No one could be doing what all of you are doing if it wasn't just for the love of this little guy and giving him a chance when most would have taken the easy way out. Continued blessings and prayers for all of you. Wind Chill, you have a great night and don't overdo. Jeanne

Keep on keeping on! ((hugs to you all)) btw, the "hittin' the web update" Chrystal (Hi, Chrystal!) referred to is the Allman Brothers Band newsletter we send out. It goes to over 75,000 people worldwide and we did indeed include sweet Windchill on our prayer list today. Take care and know that you are loved, Lana

Windchill, Jeff & Kathi, Great News! I'm so happy that you're feeling active again. This afternoon's post was the best news I've had all day. I guess the key to your healing is the right mixture of food, rest and exercise, along with generous doses of love and attention....And Jeff, Kathi and the rest of the volunteers seem to be dialing in on that mixture without leaving out anything. Have a great night. Don't tire yourself out too much but enjoy being upright!

Hi Jeff....just read your latest post and we want you to know that for whatever it's worth, this family of 6 from Virginia stands behind you! No matter if Windchill is in your barn or some fancy heated place, he wouldn't be alive if it weren't for God's will and Windchill's spirit. Some people won't understand that, but I think most will. You just keep on keepin' on and know that many, many people pray on a daily basis for you, the crew and Windchill. YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING! God Bless You! The Bruner's

Windchill, I don't know if you know, but you've got quite the band of supporters rooting for you...and that includes me!

You look wonderful and happy right where you are Windchill. You are in the best place now. You could be in the fanciest hi tech equine hospital, but you would not be surrounded by all the love and warmth you have. Lots of good barn buddies right by your side encouraging you too. Keep munching the hay and best wishes to all your human caregivers too.

Jeff, I have been checking on Windchill's progress ever since I saw the story on KARE 11 news last week. I was depressed after I read the updates last night and wasn't sure I wanted to check today. I'm glad I did. I said a prayer last night for Windchill asking for healing. I hope it worked and that he continues to improve. I am an animal lover myself, with 5 cats, a dog, and fish. I know how special the animals are and how attached we get to them. You are doing a GREAT job. Keep up the good work. Blessings to you and all of Windchill's volunteers. From the Golberg family in Park Rapids, MN near the Headwaters of the great Mississippi.

GOD BLESS YOU AND THE WHOLE CREW!! I was moved to tears to read about little Windchill and the wonderful people you and your crew are! I can personally atest for the difference unconditional love and attention can make with sick equines. My sister and I spent 4days of 3-4hours shifts this past summer when our beloved Shetland foundered. Every 4hours we forced her on her feet and she is still with us and as bratty as ever. Don't let the ignorant get you down, some people just don't understand the desire to love and animal that has had so much pain but still has so much fight!. We also rescued a aging donkey from a closing farm auction, she was a 1 on the scale and now she is a 7! for the first month we had to help her up as she was so weak and her feet were so deformed she couldn't do it on her own. I wish I could send you something to help in Windchill's recovery but the only thing I can do is keep him and all of you in my thoughts and prayers. Keep up the wonderful work and God Bless you! Please give Windchill a special hug from me and a nuzzle from Hope the donkey, she is routing for him! God Bless Bonnie and horses at Millbrook Ave Stable

Dear Jeff, We have been watching and reading the story of Windchill unfold from your writings and photos, and we want to send our prayers and encouragement to not only Windchilll but to you, your family and all the people who are helping you to bring Windchill back from near death to hopefully good health. We understand the value of animal life as well as human life, and no one can tell me that an animal life is not worth saving. We're glad you are keeping Windchill home among those that love him and we know that one of the main reasons Windchill is responding is because of the loving care he is receiving. Keep up the wonderful work and rest assured that the majority of those who are witnessing this story unfold support you.

Jeff and All,I think you are doing a great job and Windchill is liking it at your barn better than the sterile atmosphere of strangers elsewhere! It's seems as if there are always those who have something negative to say about 'rescues' so have no worries there. I rescued a horse once here in Alaska that was in horrible shape, starving, foundered and after all kinds of negativity, she's recovered and running and playing at a T'bred retirement home in WA! Continue your love and care and he WILL make it! Have you guys thought of electric blankets when he is monitored and those little packs of hand and/or toe warmers that you can wrap in to the polos? I did that because Eve, my rescue, was in my unheated, but insulated barn at 50 below zero! They work great. Jeff, your writing is fantastic and you can probably write a great kids and big kids book about Windchill! You all just hang in there! Love and Hope from ALASKA!!!

Please know that his life matters and that many, many people are thinking about him and praying for his recovery. The compassion that you've shown, the commitment to do what's best for Windchill, and the unconditional love that you give him is an inspiration. And Jeff, your writing is pure, and honest, and refreshing, and often makes me cry. Thank you for that, and for giving your heart so freely and completely to this very worthy little guy.

I can't even begin to thank you all for everything you are doing for Windchill. I agree with you Jeff it is extremely hard to say even kiel when you see what abuse and neglect this colt endured. It is a CRIME! I will be sending you some money and when he is better and up, we will be up to see him. Right now he needs his rest and love. I am incredibly happy to read the updates. Every night I read and look for them, and cry! You are so right he didn't ask for this and he didn't want this. He obviously has an agenda in his life, so he needs to hang tough and be strong. I give my kudos to you and Kathi. I can hardly wait til we can come up and see him, give him a special treat! Thank you again. Words can never express the amount of respect that I have for your team! WAY TO GO!!!!! Keep it up. Windchill thrives off all the positive you are pouring on him. The "neigh" sayers (lol) can please refrain from comments right now. This world loves this COLT! He deserves everything he is getting!!!!! :-) I sure hope the person responsible for his condition on 2/9/08, gets punished. (sorry but I do) Keep it up!!!!! GOD SPEED....Windchill keep fightin boy.....you are in WONDERFUL hands.

Hi little Windchill: Two summers ago our mini-mare Macy foaled. I got too close to her baby, a mini-molly, and Macy bit my arm, leaving a bruise that lasted most of the summer. That would be nothing compared to what your Dad and Mom would do to anyone who tried to hurt you. You're safe and loved right where you are, and are getting the best possible care. That photo of you standing with a gleam in your eye reminded me of an Elton John song: "I'm still standing, better than I ever did / spoken like a true survivor, feelin' like a little kid." You're a little kid who's going to enjoy a long, wonderful life on Raindance.

Hi Windchill, Jeff and gang~ I have been following Windchill from the beginning, checking several times a day on updates, like thousands of others I am sure do. Reading your update tonight, I was shocked that it is obvious you are getting negative mail about Winchill. I cannot believe that any thoughts like that are crossing the minds of some people. Jeff, you are a hero....an American hero, and a hero for Windchill. I have nothing but admiration for you, your obvious respect and love for our country, people, and animals. I send prayers every day to Windchill, you, Kathi and everyone involved in helping Windchill to survive and thrive. I so look forward to the day, someday, when a video of Windchill is posted of him running through the pasture. But one day at a time is the way it has to be. I have a baby horse the exact same age as Windchill, and when I look at him, love on him, teach him things, I think of Windchill, and how so very unfair life has been to him until you came into his life. What an incredible gift you give to Windchill, and what a wonderful gift he gives to all of you, and to all of us, who do not personally know him. Please give Windchill a hug and a kiss on the nose for me....he is loved. rhonda s......LIttleton, CO

Jeff, Don't ever let those people who think Windchill should not have been given a chance get you down, ignore them, they are pathetic and clueless about what really matters in this life. Same thing goes for those who think Windchill doesn't have a "good enough" barn, I have no doubt that he is safe and cozy where he is, wrapped in a quilt of love, the warmest blanket of all. He belongs where his unique life is cherished and he is "home". I applaud your decision to not move him to University unless his situation should change for the worse. What you and the vounteeers have done for Windchill is as heroic and extraordinary as Windchill's own desire to live. Special people and a special horse, all of you are blessed to have found each other. Two friends and myself got my old pony, Tony, up for two years every single day, once he was up,like Windchill, he was good for the day. We also fashioned a homemade sling for him as he couldn't stand unaided when he needed his corrective, frequent hoof trims. I remember how hard it was to get Tony up every day,the fear in the morning that I would find him not breathing, the dogged physical and emotional struggle sometimes to get him on his feet, the elation when he was standing, the joy when he had good days (and there were many).He never stopped trying so we never did either. He lived to be 40 yrs old! I wish the same for Windchill, a very long and happy life, surrounded by kindness and never again knowing anything bad, a lifetime of jewel memories just starting to be made now. What you are doing for Windchill "counts" in the greater scheme of life, so many people have been brought together out of love for this little horse, it was meant to be. All horses are special, some are old souls, I believe Windchill is one. Windchill: stay strong, there is goodness in life, spring is coming and soon you will be outdoors in the warm sun with green grass coming up everywhere and you will be running! Sending our love from the desert Southwest and may all my Rainbow Bridge ponies and horses watch over you as you grow into the horse you were always meant to be.

Dear Windchill, What a handsome little man you are. I am so proud of you for not giving up on life. You are brave and beautiful and an inspiration to many. There will always be people who think you should have been put to sleep. I like to remind those unkind people that if Barbaro's human parents hadn't give B' every chance possible to live, the Fans of Barbaro would not exist and many, many horses would have died in the slaughter house. Our group has saved over 2000 precious lives! You are worthy of a long and happy life sweet boy! God loves you and so do I! Love, Jamie Gillispie FOB Johnson City, TN For the love of one horse, Heavenly Barbaro, we began. For the well-being of Windchill and all horses, we continue.

Hi Windchill and all.. My name is Captain. I am a border collie and I just wanted to tell you that you are very lucky to be with Jeff and his family. My dad talks about you all all the time. I think he writes to you several times a day. I was abused when I was very young like you. This bad person broke my front left leg when droped me off on the road when I was just a little guy. However, I wasn't ready to go to the rainbow bridge because my dad needed me to be in his life. He found me and loved me and showed me that there are alot of really good good people in this crazy world. I am almost 2 now and I love life so much. He named me Captain hook cause of my front paw. it sorta curves but that makes me special. You to are special and I am so happy that you have Jeff, Kathi, and the girls like I have Billy. He is sorta wierd when it comes to animals. He really loves us and is so pulling for you dude. Keep your spirit and you'll be just fine. Oh here he comes so let me go, I gotta take care of him, ya know what I mean??? Later buddy ps. he said to tell ya he loves ya and is praying for ya.

Jeff, as you know there is nothing that will warm your heart more when you walk into your barn than to be greeted by your horses soft nicker. When I go to my barn, that is where I am most at peace. I have 3 horses in my own little barn a cat that greets me and my dog by my side. It's my own special little place and I wouldn't have it any other way. Now I have Wind Chill to watch over and see how he is slowly improving. He's in my thoughts constantly and I find myself going to your web site to check on him every few hours just as if I was going to my barn to check on my own horses.

Hey Windchill, tell your "best friends" that they do not need to explain, or justify, who they are, why they did this and will continue to do this. The answers are in your eyes. Did you know your name means: Wind; living by a "windy road" -kind of explains your life and Chill: means Child, a term of status for a young man of noble birth awaiting Knighthhood !!!!!

That there are people in the world that are cruel is a fact. But that somebody would go out of their way to get onthis site to send negative messages is beyond my reasoning.

This morning when I went to the barn and my big QH gelding was ready to go out. He really wasn't interested in his grain, he just wanted out. I told him your story as I was cleaning his stall and how lucky he was to have feed & grain and a nice warm blanket to wear when he went outside and a barn when the weather was bad. He kinda looked at me and went over and ate his grain. He's now out in the snow with his hay and I really think he realizes how lucky he is. We are all so sad for what happened to you but also know you will never be cold or hungry again. Nancy, Tn.

Good Morning Baby Windchill, I spent several hours watching you on the cam last night. We are sooo happy that you are hanging in there and continuing to improve-even gaining some weight according to your Dad's update this am!!! You are a very strong little guy and I personally know the hard work it takes to get well after you are that sick. But you can do it, YOU ARE DOING IT!!!-and you have the most compassionate and dedicated Dad and group of caregivers to help you. Plus, you have all of us whose hearts you have touched and have come to love you rooting for you every minute of every day. I KNOW you are going to make it and I think your Dad will have to continue to keep us all posted and send pictures forever. Thank you Jeff, Kathi, and team of helpers for doing this for Windchill. I am sorry that there are some heartless, mean people who seem not to understand your kindness and concern to help Windchill make it back from near death. What these people do not understand is that it is Windchill's WILL TO LIVE that kept him alive until you rescued him and HIS Will is keeping him fighting. If he did not want to live so bad he would not be here no matter what anyone does. Thank God that he has you, Kathi and all your friends, including the thousands of us out here in internet land, praying, sending donations, and encouraging him and helping him to get better. Please do not get discouraged by whomever is sending you nasty comments-just remember they are greatly outnumbered by the rest of us as you can see from all our posts. Have a great day and give Windchill XOXOXO from me. PS-Enjoyed watching Walker on the cam too-with his toy-looks like he is having fun and watching out for Windchill too.

I was so happy to read yesterday afternoons blog - at first. I was teary eyed reading about Windchill welcoming you home! I bet a lot of others were too! Then I was appalled at the next paragraph. It's seems it's not enough to have to be consumed by worry for the health of Windchill. Now you have to worry about his safety???? And the condition of his shelter???? Are we forgetting he didn't have any shelter just a couple weeks ago??? I think there are plenty of people out there who would probably love to have that same roof over their heads! I feel strongly that there is no such thing as coincidence. If Windchill wan't supposed to live and be with you than God would not have brought Kathi to him in the nick of time! Jeff, I don't know what was said to fear for Windchills saftey, but please take care not only of him but your entire team as well. My prayers will continue to ask God to give you wisdom and guidance in Windchills care. For Windchill, comfort and continued love and care from his team. And for God to wrap a protective hedge around all of you!! Blessings, Mary

Jeff and all.... It is a wonderful post this am that Wind Chill is coming along so well and so far! Congrats to all of you who are giving you all for this guy. I marvel at your graciousness in opening your farm to visitors, I hope they take the time to visit with the other horses there and respect your barn rules. Wind Chill has a long way to go, you can tell that he is getting better and probably a little 'antsy' to do more, good sign that he is getting heavier and taller, and giving nickers to those he loves. I also wonder at your strenth at being able to do so much, with what must be so little sleep. All of you, stay well. Wind Chill, wishing you another wonderful day.

Good Morning Windchill, Glad to hear you are progressing!!! Keep up the good work!! Jeff, sounds like some people are criticizing you for your efforts here. Unfortunately, these people exists in this world we live in. (They're usually the ones who "know everything & do nothing".) You are the one who sees this colt daily and for you to devote the detication you have to saving his life, I feel certain you are making the best choices for Windchill. I believe for him to be in a caring and loving environment (like he is now, with you) plays a major role in his battle to survive and his will to live. I have NO DOUBT he knows that he is very loved and cared for. Keep up the WONDERFUL work & God bless you all! Sara

I told him your story as I was cleaning his stall and how lucky he was to have feed & grain and a nice warm blanket to wear when he went outside and a barn when the weather was bad. He kinda looked at me and went over and ate his grain. He's now out in the snow with his hay and I really think he realizes how lucky he is. We are all so sad for what happened to you but also know you will never be cold or hungry again. Nancy, Tn.

I read your updates every morning and evening. It is wonderful that you are able to stand up for extended periods of time. It is a sure sign that you are on the road to recovery when you chow down on food and water!!!! I am looking forward to the day when you manage to get up on all four legs without assistance. You will hear loud cheers coming from around the world when that happens!!!!! Kathi and Jeff once again thank you for all that you continue to do for this beautiful colt. Also, my thanks go out to all the faithful volunteers who show up to assist!

Good morning Windchill, Kathi and Jeff, What wonderful news this morning. I did catch some of the web cam last night but saw mostly Walker, Aussie healer and angel to Windchill. I keep watching the news spot and Windchill looks like he is enjoying his rub down so much. What a darling little colt. Keep getting stronger little Windchill and thank you to all of you for doing such a wonderful job for this special little horse. Here's kisses and love to you sweet little boy until I can see you and give you kisses myself.

Hi Windchill! Your coat sure looks better. We read the updates several times a day. We see a nice barn that protects from the wind, rain, and snow. Windchills bedding area does look nice and soft and clean, medical experts and helpers were consulted.SadieDog noticed the blankets right away, as she has her very own blankets, one even says Princess. Nothing like a warm blanket on a cold wintery night Sadie says. Dad Jeff, you and your volunteers are the best!! Looks to us like you are doing everything right. We still send prayers out to you. Windchill,it was great to read you tried to stand up when dad walked into the barn! Keep up the good work!! Hum....... a Partridge Family reunion.

I hope I have the chance to look into your eyes and understand in some small way all the hope and wonder inside your SOUL. You found the most remarkable and wonderful people to help you in your journey back to the WORLD,and in return given so many people pure joy and comfort in your day to day recovery.It is truly a gift to read and think and pray for you.My dogs have taught me much about the animal-human bond, but the courage and will you have displayed has made me more aware of the link of our two very different worlds and how much we have to learn. Perhaps,someday we will understand......I am grateful for the chance to hear your story.You are surrounded by love from those you do not even know. You have taught us much.Thank-you.

Great news about Windchill. What a happy day to read that he is trying to get up and gaining weight and height. Every day you get stronger. I am praying for his full recovery and that Windchill and everyone involved with his care be surrounded by the protective power of God's Love. I wish I was closer and I could visit you and give you a big hug. Soon spring will be here and you will be outside with sun on your back and eating sweet grass. Love to everyone and thank you for what you have done for Windchill.

Best of luck. We do foster care for the MnHooveAnimalRescue and recently had a mare foal in this cold weather. It's been work. I can only imagine the time and energy you are putting in to this little guy along with you daily chores. I do not know enough about frostbit or "frozen" legs to understand how he will be able to use them, but I certainly hope for the best. Thank you for giving yourself and time to a second chance for him. Cindy & Jim

Keep up the good work, Jeff, Kathi, and all volunteers! Never doubt for a second that you have done the right thing. Don't let the thoughts and opinions of negative people get you down, either! Jesus said that God cares for the fate of all His creatures, even the smallest sparrow. So in my estimation, you are all doing the Lord's work here. Thanks so much for all you have done, are doing, and have yet to do for Windchill. Take comfort from the kind words and support you receive from more positive folks! God bless you all and God bless Windchill!

Dear Windchill, I check out your web site everyday and keep you and your care givers in my thoughts and prayers. From wathching your videos-I can see what a spirit you have in you. You are just too beautiful for words and so are your care givers. Keep fighting little guy! I agree with the sentiments of ignoring the "nay sayers" and just concentrate on the positive energy and love coming your way. You and your care givers are about what is right with this World! Again take care and God be with you all.

you gave your dad such ;a wonderful welcome home yesterday. way to go windchill. to me the true measure of a person is how they treat all of God's creatures. do what you have to do to protect and care for him. we are all behind you. there will always be the negative people-they are never happy about anything and their glass is always half empty.to me a home is warmth and love and the feeling of security. windhill is where he should be. that is why he wanted to say hi to dad. he knows he is home. love and prayers windhill. continued healing

It is so heart warming to see the absolute love going into tending this wonderful being. I am a horse lover, with two of my own, my husband knows it would be more than that if I had my way. Being from SW Arkansas I see neglect of animals all the time and no one seems to care, not even our law enforcement. If I had the ways and means I would be more than glad to site with this loving soul that you are caring for. I am saying my prayers for the care givers and this Loving Soul Windchill.

This morning when I went to the barn my big QH gelding was ready to go out. He really wasn't interested in his grain, he just wanted to go out. I told him your story as I was cleaning his stall and how lucky he was to have hay & grain and a nice warm blanket to wear when he went outside and a barn when the weather was bad. He kinda looked at me and walked over to his feed tub and ate his grain. He is now out in the snow with his hay and I think he realizes how lucky he is. We are all so sad and upset for what happened to you but also know you will never be cold or hungy again. Nancy, Tn.

Good Afternoon Wind Chill, I see you had ACN last night and I hope that you will ACn tonight. Boy you've gotten a lot of attention and love from so many people and you so deserve it. I pray that your legs are getting warmer and stronger so that one day soon you will be standing up on your own when your Mom and Dad come to check on you.

Just think if everyone gave a dollar time or even a penny! p.s. I'm not affiliated with Jeff Tucker, Raindance Farms or the artist. I just love Windchill, his story, and money is needed for the best care by his wonderful caregivers. "He sure loves the alfalfa!" said Jeff Tucker today.

Windchill, I was thrilled to hear you're getting stronger! Be sure to have Jeff post your progress on the 1-to-9 horse scale. I bet you’re no longer at 0. Even if you are, if you watch Jeopardy, you know that being at zero is progress if you had previously been in negative numbers. I doubt you would do as well if you were anywhere else. You’re a pizza-and-beer horse, a non-fancy-grain horse, Thank God You’re a Country Horse!

You post tonight is really heart warming. Windchill is starting to act more and more like a horse...appreciative yet demanding his dad's attention NOW! Good for you fella, keep the humans on their toes. I bet hearing his whinney's are like the best music, especially since they are getting more acknowleding and not the 'hey, I am over here' from the night he was rescued. Go and spend time with together. Tell Windchill I can see how beautiful his coat is even from the pictures. Glad to hear he is getting some muscle and strength as well and those pounds added on. Give all of you well deserved hugs and pats on the back, give Windchill a hug from us. Continued prayers and blessing to all who enter Raindance Farms. Jeanne and Monty (Fjordhorse)

Windchill, I am SO HAPPY that you have had such a great week!! Keep it up buddy!, I saw your picture on duluthnewstribune.com today and you sure look handsome and your coat is getting so shiny. Keep munching on that alfalfa! I think pretty soon your daddy is going to walk into the barn and you will be already standing on your own to greet him, boy will that be a wonderful surprise, I can tell by your daddy's posts that he is extremely proud of you. I'm sure every one that has you in their thoughts and prayers are elated that you are doing so good!! To the caretakers: I really wish there were more people like you on this earth, it would be a much better place!! Thank you for all you have done to help this special little horse continue to live as he has obviously wanted to. His spirit is amazing and he has fought so hard to survive. His life was absolutely worth saving! Thank you! Take care & God bless! Tracy

Good Morning Wind Chill. We had snow in East Tn. 2 days ago and the temps. were very cold. My horses spent that time in the barn. This morning when I went to the barn my big QH gelding was ready to go out. He really wasn't interested in his grain, he just wanted to go out. I told him your story as I was cleaning his stall and how lucky he was to have hay & grain and a nice warm blanket to wear when he went outside and a barn when the weather was bad. He kinda looked at me and walked over to his feed tub and ate his grain. He is now out in the snow with his hay and I think he realizes how lucky he is. We are all so sad and upset for what happened to you but also know you will never be cold or hungy again. Nancy, Tn.

I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of you Windchill! You are one tough cookie! I have been watching the Duluth paper every day since your story broke, and I just love every update I can get! Your courage and strong will brings me to tears and I am so very glad to hear you're doing well. I'm also greatful that whoever decided they didn't have to care for you properly will be charged and hopefully convicted. To the angels who rescued you, God bless you! I admire all the hard work, late nights,and the amazing amounts of love you all have put into Windchill's recovery. You all are wonderful people and you deserve all the respect in the world. Keep up the good work, I'm sure you are exhausted but you are doing great! I bet just one look at his little face is all you need to keep going. Don't listen to anyone who has anything negative to say to you. You have given Windchill the most important thing; love. The only opinion you need to listen to is his. Take care and give Windchill a snuggle from the Brissett Family! All my Blessings, Anne Brissett Esko, MN

Actually this message is for the human caregivers-You are all doing a wonderful job and if I still lived in Minnesota I would volunteer to help. You guys are all great. Keep up the good work!! I do have a question about where Windchill will end up after his recovery. You home page says he is prt of your farm Does that mean that he now belongs to you and there is no chance of him going back to his old home. I really hope this is the case he belongs with you.

Good morning Windchill. Your dad's updates are telling us how wonderful you are doing. Be sure you give a slurpy kiss to all those that are working so hard to keep you warm, fed and healthier. You are so beautiful both in spirit and body. Keep working at getting up....you'll do it before long! I love you and can't wait to meet you some day. Jeff and Kathi, I can't imagine anyone who would find fault with the miracle you have helped with. Keep giving us good reports. I can't wait to get new updates all day long. I'm totally captivated with this little beautiful colt and all of his caregivers. Maybe one of these days I can make the trip up for a visit and to help if needed.

Yippee WIndchill. Your looking good. Hopefully your legs will be doing better too, at your next check up. Tell Kathi, Jeff and the rest of the team thank you for posting your latest pics. I always seem to miss the web cam when it is up. Also tell them all what a wonderful job they have done. I am sure you do, everyday.

Many thanks to Jeff and all the volunteers. You renew my faith in humanity by your efforts to bring Windchill back to health. I'm forwarding a donation in remembrance of a most beloved canine companion-Brooks. Please use it as you see fit, be it coffee, pizza, or alfalfa. Thank you again. (no need to respond)

My Fjord got used to the smell of coffee and quiet talk at his previous barn, he enjoys some coffee from time to time,(I drink decaf),he likes a little cream and sugar in his...it is one of those things we share. I am sure many wonderful and positive things are being imprinted on Windchill in the short time he has come into your lives. Sorry about the coffee burn Jeff, that can't feel good. Thank you so much for the latest pictures. They show a much improved Windchill, I can only imagine the improvement you must be able to see in person. Again a huge thank you to ALL of you caring for this boy, continued prayers for all of you, and all the residents of Raindance Farms. God bless. Windchill, hugs and kisses for not giving up and for getting up, standing, eating, drinking and bringing so many strangers together. Jeanne

Way to go, Windchill!! Your growth spurt has begun. It wasn’t too long ago it looked like you had a stick-horse neck. Now it’s looking more like it should, and your body will catch up soon, especially eating that good alfalfa hay. My grandma had a saying after she finished cleaning the church, “I’m tired, but it’s a good tired.” Jeff and crew, you must feel that way because your hard work is paying off. Hmm, there’s another song in there: “Watching Windchill Grow.”

Good Morning Wind Chill, We had snow in East Tn. a couple of days ago and temps. were very cold. My horses spent that time in the barn. This morning when I walked into the barn my big QH gelding was ready to go out. He really wasn't interested in his grain, he just wanted out. I told him your story as I was cleaning his stall and how lucky he was to have hay and grain and a nice warm blanket to wear when he went outside and a barn when the weather was bad. He just looked at me and then walked over to his bucket and ate his grain. He is now outside with his hay and I really think he realizes how lucky he is. We are all so sad about the terrible ordeal you have gone through, but also know that Jeff & Kathi will never let you be cold or hungry again. Nancy, Tn.

Three of us are rescues from bad places. Boo (I'm the Tibetan Spaniel!) was left in an unheated garage after a Michigan blizzard. Hypothermia robbed her of some mental capacities, but she has had another good ten years with us without them. She says if a 15 pound dog could make it, so can a 400 pound horse. All the animals know you are making it. We watch your films as often as we can and enjoy the webcam.

My heart breaks for windchill, but Jeff you and your family are heroes for the great care you have given Windchill. The day in and day out care of such a sick horse is very difficult. I have sent a donation of Equine Allies to help offset his costs. I agree with you, he is better off in loving surroundings than at the U, even though it is the best place you never want to go to. My old quarter horse had colic surgery there, they had 5 vets doing evaluations on her when I arrived. She survived too ! I purchased my current horse very underweight, he had cow hips, a knob where his croup was, and was ewe necked. But he has such sparkle in his eyes, I figured I could fix the weight with time. ROASTED SOY BEANS WERE THE TICKET. They are 90%fat and will not make him hot, and will make his coat look good too. They have a nutty flavor and I have not found a horse who didn't like them. You can get them at Dans Feed Bin, I think they were about $20 a hundred pound sack. It took almost a YEAR, but he is beautiful now ! Please do not despair as the slow pace of Windchill's recovery. Claudia

My heart has been opened wider, due to your story of the little colt, Windchill. You have done a wonderful thing for this world by helping that little guy hanginthere. He is a miracle of persistence, and you all are his angels. With life falling apart around my ears, his story of love and grace, (plus incredibly hard cold work) has mesmerized me. If he can survive this, his 1st winter in MN, I can certainly survive my last. Please don't let the UofMn vet school get their hands on him, you'd need a vault to pay them off, plus, those doctors know much less than all of you with the experience you have with him. Believe me, I took my dog there, and all they could do was shrug their shoulders.

As I watch the snow flakes gently fall this morning I was thinking about the great conversation I had with Kathi yesterday. I could hear in her voice that this is someone who truly cares about animals as I'm sure Jeff does too or he wouldn't be doing all he is for Windchill. (I like this spelling better too) Never mind the flak, there are heartless people out there that have no idea what it means to love something other than themselves and remember there are thousands more people out there that are behind you and majority rules. So hang in there with the little guy and never give up. He's a living breathing creature on this earth and deserves every chance he can get.

Windchill is probably getting excited about some of the 'bling' that would only help to make him even more handsome in those horse catalogs. He is beginning to sound like he is well rested, has had excellent meals and is gaining his strength and horse-atude. Good for you Windchill! I hope all of you who have been in the barn on these cold days and nights are taking a good look at what you have accomplished so far. May the Lord continue to bless all of you, and Windchill, do not over do it!! Jeanne

I hope we can send just a little sunshine his way so that he never has to be cold again. Thank you for being so caring for a small being who needed a lot of care. You have brought many of us together with great hopes for Windchill's future. Keep on, keep on and God Bless all of you!

I Believe I believe in friendship, and I believe in trees, And I believe in hollyhocks a-swaying in the breeze, And I believe in robins and roses white and red, And rippling brooks and rivers and blue skies overhead, And I believe in laughter, and I believe in love, And I believe the daffodils believe in God above. I am no unbeliever, I know that men are true, I know the joy of summer time when skies above are blue, I know there is no earthly power can shape a budding rose, Or bring a daisy into bloom; with all that wisdom knows It could not fashion, if it would, the humblest blade of grass Or stretch a living carpet where the weary travelers pass. I believe in friendship, for I have found it good, And I believe in kindly words, for I have understood; My faith is founded on the years and all that I have seen, Something of God I've looked upon no matter where I've been. Within a swamp but yesterday a lily smiled at me And only God could set it there to bloom for me to see I also believe you Windchill and you Jeff, Kathi, and even his owner who let you take him, knew that this is where god wanted him to be.

It is so thrilling to read about the miracle of Windchill pushing himself around his stall with those same legs that were frozen 20 days ago...and lifting his head, putting on some weight, not to mention his standing and walking around his stall! Windchill definitely has a purpose to his life...won't it be something to watch it unfold? The whole Windchill phenomenon is rather miraculous itself...so many people have been mesmerized by this little guy and the love and dedication all of you have shown him. Even tho we know he is not the only horse to have been neglected as he was (I heard on the radio today of another bunch that were in very bad condition when they were discovered)but there is just something about Windchill that draws a person to him. Jeff, your updates are so special, because it makes us feel like we're there. Kathi plays such an important part too,keeping things on track, as well as the many volunteers... I'm not sure how many times a day I find myself checking the site for new information, but its become an obsession. With the progress Windchill has made in this short time, your decisions and choices for him most certainly have been led by God. Thank you for listening... The pictures from today show such progress, its hard to imagine where he will be in 6 months from now...I'll still be checking! All of you, get some rest on Sunday.

2/29/08 11:15 California time - GOOD FOR ALL OF YOU in deciding to close the barn to the public for the weekend. Everyone needs some quiet time. We're so very proud of you, Windchill and thankful to each one of your loving caretakers. Keep on kicking Windchill....exercise those legs and make them strong. It's going to be an incredible celebration when you make it up the first time completely by yourself but for now....easy does it...and one day at a time. You're doing great. You are so loved, little one. May you dream tonight all good things of warm blankets, lots of love, lots of food and running in the pasture one day with Walker barking all the way besides you. Hugs and prayers to all of you. May God continue to heal you completely, Windchill. Our prayers are going up every day and throughout the day. xoxoxo, Jeri & Family p.s. it would be cool if people might think about putting a date on the comments they type. They're wonderful to read.

Windchill, you have an incredible spirit and an amazing group of people surrounding you. I do not know how you made the decision to live, but you have brought life to many others in the process. People who dedicate themselves to aiding you and others like you in your stuggle, find their own lives enriched beyond belief.

I truly appreciate what you have done for this colt. IT is so wonderful to know that there are people like you as I would do the same thing. I know it has to be heartbreaking and fear is with you at all times but hopefully the rewards will come thru for you and Windchill. I have tried to save a few myself. We have 75 Paso Finos and I love each of them with their distinct personalities. I wish you the best. Wish I was closer so I could also help with your care of Windchill. Thank you for being the type of people you all are!!

We discovered the story of Windchill (and Walker) while browsing Zazzle, as mentioned in Chris Pirillo's Lockergnome newsletter. As faithful friends of Barbaro, and ardent animal advocates, we were stunned and saddened to hear about Windchill's horrible abuse and traumatic experience. But our faith in human kindness has been strengthened by your extraordinary care and concern to help save this poor little horse. Many times when we despair in the human capacity for cruelty, we seem to see others who epitomize the best in humanity. We guess there's hope for us after all, and certainly now, hope for Windchill. Our best wishes (and several big hugs) go to Windchill as he recovers, and our heartfelt thanks to all at Raindance Farms for your wonderful efforts. We plan on buying Windchill products at Zazzle, and helping to spread the word here in Florida about Windchill's story. God bless.

I know you are all heartbroken. What you have done and given to a foal, forgotten and left to die in the cold harsh winter, is by no means belittled by the passing of this little guy named Windchill. He brought a nation together, strangers whose hearts are all grieving today as the news of Windchills death finds its way across the internet. I will be adding a star to the tree I have put up in memory of not only my horse who passed suddenly, but to all the horses of all my friends....this little star by far will be the brightest. Heartfelt gratitude to all of you and with saddness, Jeanne and Monty

Because now he feels great, he can run, and he's not sad! I bet Windchill is telling Jesus that although the first people he met were not very nice, the people he ended up with were! He experienced first hand the best that God had to offer when he came to your and the team!!! Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Good-bye, little Windchill. You have put up a gallant fight to live and grow but you were needed more 'elsewhere'. Your passing has left a hollow spot but, even more, a belief in the goodness and caring of so many around the world. Your rescuers and caregivers have given so much to make your life here so much more comfortable and full of love and encouragement. They did all they could and kept you close to that flood of caring and love right until you were at last ready to go 'home'. You will never be forgotten.

I was SO sorry to read of your loss of Windchill. He had become such a huge part of my day, I can't even IMAGINE what you're feeling at this time. Please know that what you did for Windchill, you also did for this nation. Hundreds of thousands of people felt your love and kindness for this little guy and came together for a cause...Windchill and all other animals that are mistreated in this world. I can only hope that when my time comes I will be surrounded be a fraction of the gentle love and unselfish kindness he knew. I love your idea for a foundation in his name. My daughter and I have been involved in horse rescue for three years and would love to find some way to work with his foundation here in Pennsylvania. Please NEVER second guess what you have done...you did what was GOOD and what was RIGHT and we will always be grateful to you for that. None of us will EVER be the same. Thank you all.

Jeff, Kathi, and Windhchill’s care team, I write this through tears that won’t stop for the passing of a horse I never met but came to love and care for since I first heard about him but one short week ago. I checked your website continually throughout the day for updates. I rode the emotional roller coaster with you—the joyful victories and the heartbreaking setbacks. This “hope on hooves” touched so many hearts bringing people together from all over the country and even a few from across the pond. And, in that, there is much good. His short life was not in vain. Thank you all for caring for him, for loving him, and for giving him the dignity in his final days that he didn’t know before you came into his life. He died shrouded in a “blanket of love” not alone desolate in a field. He felt your love as he passed over the Rainbow Bridge. I will greatly miss dear, sweet Windchill. May he rest in eternal peace.

Jeff, Kathi, and Windhchill’s care team, I write this through tears that won’t stop for the passing of a horse I never met but came to love and care for since I first heard about him but one short week ago. I checked your website continually throughout the day for updates. I rode the emotional roller coaster with you—the joyful victories and the heartbreaking setbacks. This “hope on hooves” touched so many hearts bringing people together from all over the country and even a few from across the pond. And, in that, there is much good. His short life was not in vain. Thank you all for caring for him, for loving him, and for giving him the dignity in his final days that he didn’t know before you came into his life. He died shrouded in a “blanket of love” not alone desolate in a field. He felt your love as he passed over the Rainbow Bridge. I will greatly miss dear, sweet Windchill. May he rest in eternal peace.

I can't believe this happened. My grief is beyond words. I guess all we can be grateful he had the happieness he did the last couple of weeks. He had love and tenderness and food, shelter and warmth. Yes, he was surrounded with the BEST people who gave up their regular lives to connect and care for our little guy. My anger burns for the awful humans who were cruel to him. I hope they pay for that. BUT now is not the time to go into that. Windchill brought us hope in a very cruel world that people can come together and have hope for one little colt. He made a difference for people all over the world. This world can be so into gadgets, money, material things. Windchill just wanted love and care. We all will remember our little colt. Thank GOD he was found so his last days would be surrounded with LOVE. I will still check in with the Raindance Farms site from time to time to see how walker and the rest of the gang are doing. Please Jeff, continue to blog you are a wonderful person, as well as the rest of the team. You can rest assured you all gave it all you could. GOD just said it was time for our guy to go. Their was a reason he was brought to you. I have to go, I can't hold back the tears anymore. Love you Windchill, run like the wind.... Jeff, could the lady who did the "reading" from pure spirit contact him? Just want to know what Windchill had to say.

My tears for Windchill and your loss are not stopping anytime soon.. How sad... Forgive me, but what happened? Did he have a blood clot? He was getting better? I don't understand. I don't know anything about horses, so forgive me. I only know about broken hearts when a beloved one leaves. So sorry. Nothing to say, except that I believe I will see Windchill in Heaven.

Mr. Tucker, Ms. Davis and all of Windchill's caregivers: I am so deeply saddened to read that Windchill passed. It's hard to write through the tears. I wish to express my deepest sympathy to you. I (like so many others) was praying that Windchill would make it. You know his spirit will live on. I sent a check to put towards his care, but now please accept it as a donation to his fund. Please remember - that as long as you have someone in your heart, you'll always have them with you. Regards - Lisa Parks

Jeff & Kathy, My heart is just broken. I can't even try to imagine what you are feeling. Precious, Innocent Windchill, may have passed shortly after I sent my 'tuck in' note to him last nite & lit candles for him. Pl. take consolation in the fact, Windchill passed, knowing he was LOVED, cared for, fed, had many, many friends & family . You gave him all that plus YOU gave him the 'warmth' he needed when you found him! HE KNEW HE WAS SPECIAL!~ Pl. take care of yourselves. You have done so much, in such a short time for this baby colt. Thank you for sharing Windchill w/us.~ Thinking & praying for YOU. Peggy

I cannot control my tears. Many of us across the nation will be crying together today over the loss of precious little Windchill. My deepest sympathies go out to Jeff, Kathi, and all of those that showed him the love and tenderness he always deserved. I am feeling such a loss; I can’t imagine the emptiness you are feeling. You did everything you could have done, and he was very grateful to you all for that (we all are too). He got to experience what wonderful people there are in this world. My comments for those that neglected him, I will find someplace else to post - as they are not appropriate for a place filled with Love. God saw how special Windchill is and was ready for him in Heaven. My heart is broken. Windchill has left a “hoof print” in my heart forever. Jeff, Kathi, and all those that cared for him- I pray the Lord bring you peace, and comfort throughout this difficult time. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. I send hugs and kisses to across the Rainbow Bridge for Windchill. I picture him in the sunshine with a sweet little girl riding on his back. . and later she feeds him alfalfa. God Bless you all.

I can't stop checking in on this site, to see if it was error. I am totally heartbroken and can only imagine the way you feel. Again, I am so sorry that some people thought that it was ok to leave a horse outside without shelter or any food or water. Being a native northern Minnesotan (Iron Range) the elements are brutal. I am so extremely grateful that Jeff, Kathi and his personal angels, were there to help him in his fight......Again I am so extremely sorry for the loss. (however this may be selffish, but is there any way to say what happened?) He seemed to be doing so well, and I only got to see him last night for a few moments, and noticed he was moving around, thought that was a good sign? I used to own a horse but am not familiar with this type of devestation to ones, body? So I am just curious. Again, god speed, and Windchill I am so incredibly sorry that you were abused to such an extent. Now, we will have our plight to make sure the people that did this to you, are held accountable as much as the law requires! Rest in Peace, young man....YOU WILL BE MISSED! HUGS AND KISSES AND RUNNNNNNNNNNN FREEEEEEEEE! :(

I am sooo so sorry to hear about Windchll. It just breaks my heart. I am so glad that he was able to experience unconditional love before he crossed the rainbow. That wouldn't of happened if it wasn't for Kathi, Jeff and the volunteers. So for that, I am so grateful to all of you. There is some comfort that Windchill died in a barn surrounded by food, water, warmth and love than out on a frigid pasture. Bless you Kathi and Jeff for never giving up on this little guy.

To Windchill's family, I am unbelievably saddened to hear of the death of this determined little colt. Truthfully, I've been crying all morning. My husband and I have been keeping a close eye on Windchill's progress. His is story of hope and courage and utter kindness of spirit that I won't soon forget. His death must have come as such a shock to you, as it did to us. We truly felt your kindness and his spirit would triumph over the odds. I hope you know that an entire community is standing beside you during this difficult time.

Our daughter Lisa, who lives in Superior, Wi., called and told us the story about Windchill and gave us your web site. We have all been horse and animal lovers in our family all of our lives. Windchill's story is simply amazing! He has definitely got the heart of a survivor!!! We hope and pray that he continues on his road to recovery and go on to live a wonderful life. In your care, I'm sure that he will have just that. You are indeed an amazing man yourself to be doing what you are doing to make sure that Windchill has the best care. Our hat is off to you.

My heart is just broken. I was devestated and taken by such surprise when I checked on Windchill's progress this morning. My heart goes out to all who unconditionally devoted their time to care for him. Thank you all so much for what you did for him. We are all grateful he did not die alone in that pasture, never knowing the increidble love, kindness and care that you were able to provide him. Unfortunately, there is not always a happy ending to instances of abuse and neglect of animals. What a reality lesson to all regarding the responsibility owners/caretakers have for those who are entrusted into their care. I know he's free from pain and suffering now, and running free. I'm sure we all would have loved to have seen him experience that on this earth. May God abundantly bless all of you and fill the void you must feel with peace. This is all just too sad for words...........God's speed Winchill. I loved you, too.

I can just about see you running free after crossing the Rainbow Bridge, Windchill - - you will be sorely missed by all whose hearts and spirits you touched - in the golden retriever world, when a golden crosses the Bridge, we look for a bright and special star to indicate a safe journey and entrance to new home - I will look for such a star tonight, and think of you and the incredible spirit you showed when you were here - may the special memories bring some comfort to your caregivers, may your short time here be remembered with love, peace, Windchill

This note is with the most profound sympathy to Jeff, Kathi and all who helped so diligently and unselfishly in Windchill's care. We all followed your updates on his progress and had that 'feeling' things were going to turn out ok. Now we learn it's not to be. What a mark that little guy made on people's lives! So many came together in love for him--around the world!--urging him and his caregivers on, even though the odds were stacked against him. Now, we all come together in sympathy at his loss. There are lessons to be learned from his short existence and as time heals your aching hearts, you'll be able to think of him with joy rather than sadness. His memory will forever be embedded deep in our hearts. Windchill--fly high with those wings, little guy--run and play with those who have flown over the Rainbow Bridge before you and say Hi to all for us!!

I am not there, I do not sleep. Do not sand at my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die! Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. I am the song that will never end. I am the love of family and friend. I am the child who has come to rest In the arms of the Father who knows him best. When you see the sunset fair, I am the scented evening air. I am the joy of a task well done. I am the glow of the setting sun. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die!

All you ever wanted was to be a little horse: now God has given you wings to be just that. The Psalms say, "He maketh me to lie down in green pastures", but we know He has made you strong and whole to run and kick your heels instead. Thank you, Kathi and Jeff, for allowing me the honor of being part of Wind Chill's team. You all have changed my life forever, and Baby Boy, you live on in our hearts. Polly

I am comforted that he did not die alone in that frozen pasture but that he had three wonderful weeks with you and that he knew he was loved. Maybe that's why he survived - someone wanted him to exerience such love and devotion before he left this life. He is now running free at the Bridge waiting for those who loved him.

Dear Jeff, Kathy and all those involved in Windchill's care, My heartfelt condolences for the passing of Windchill! He deserves every tear shed for him! Several years ago, the esteemed Evangelist, Billy Graham, was a guest on the Larry King show. Larry asked Rev. Graham if he believed dogs went to Heaven. Rev Graham stated yes, he believed dogs went to Heaven, he then stated he had a beloved retriver, who was his best buddy and if his dog did not go to Heaven, he was not know if he wanted to be there! Rev. Graham then stated he believed all animals went to Heaven! In Revelations 19, the Bible states, Christ will be coming back riding a white horse! May all of you take comfort in this! God Bless you! You are all hero's! Margo Wilson keepher1@atcyber.net Email address named for my beloved rescue lab mix,Keep-Her, who has passed and waiting for me!

I am so sorry to here that windchill passed away last night. I didnt get to know him but my tears flow and my sadness is real. Animals are a big part of my life and they are just as important to me as my own children. I am so sickened by how a human being can treat an animal that way. I hope that they are prosecuted to the fullest. Animal cruelty isn't taken seriously enough by many states and it NEEDS to be. Animals in this situation can't help themselves and shouldn't have to go through this EVER. Windchills sadness is my sadness too. I am so happy that there are people like you who gave it there all to help him and did your best to make his last days happy. We need more compassionate people in this world like you. My prayers and condolences are with you. mary brown superior wisconsin

He was truely loved beyond words in his final weeks. We believe he passsed away peacefully. we had no warning and even the vet is surprised. She had just been out hours before he passed and was very pleased with his progress. I and many others feel very sad for this loss. He was truely sweet and loving. I will miss him deeply.............. I want people to know that Kathy and Jeff at Raindance went above and beyond for him. They truley filled his life with love and kindness in his last weeks here on this earth with us. I could never thank them enough or give them enough praise. Lord, I come to you in Christs name and I give thanks for WindChill for teaching the world to care about neglected horses. We are deeply saddened by his passing but we know he was called to greener pastures. Lord we give thanks to Kathy and Jeff for doing all that they could. We give thanks to all of those that sent there thoughts, warm wishes and Prayers. To those that were out there with kathy and Jeff we give thanks to you as well. Amen

It's hard to fathom that a little colt who most of us didn't have the pleasure to even meet could leave such a huge hole in our hearts. Windchill has taught us that there is still good in the world, kindness amongst strangers, faith, compation, and love. Although his time on earth was short, his memory will live on. Jeff, thank you for allowing all of us to be part of Windchil's life. Rest in peace, Windchill...and run free!

I am so sorry. I have loved you from afar. I just read a Cherokee devotional and there was a sentence that read, "they slipped past the boundaries to joy and rest without limit." And that's what I like to think, little Windchill. You slipped past your boundaries to run with joy and strength with the heavenly herd. I think another little horse, Bucky, was there to greet you. We lost Bucky this week, too. He was brave and strong and everything good, just like you. Thank you Jeff, Kathi and all the caregivers who brought Windchill peace, joy and love. Thank you for sharing him with me and the rest of us. In admiration, Amy

A little colt lay cold and dying in a windswept field. Puzzled and wondering, what did I do, why doesn't anyone help me? Out of the blowing snow, a kind voice, a warm blanket, gentle hands lift and carry him to shelter where he finds the best in human nature, after experiencing the worst. Jeff & Kathy, you found a dying colt, with nothing alive but the will survive, and the need to know that there was something right in this often miserable and unforgiving world. He needed you and all the people who believed in him to come into his life; he needed to know that generosity, tenderness and strength were things that could and did come his way. He needed abundance and warmth, a full stomach and nourishing meals. And he got all of that and more. He knew you, recognized you, and acknowledged your presence in his life. He knew that finally he was valued and loved, he was sure of it to the depths of his being, beyond any shadow of a doubt. And perhaps then he said thank you, and he left. I'm so sorry, you gave him everything, but most of all, you gave him back himself. Marsh in TN

Like all the other hearts you have touched these past few weeks, my heart is broken and the tears keep flowing. Many have said it more eloquently, but little Windchill, you mattered. You mattered to Jeff and Kathi and the volunteers who gave everything they had to give you another chance. And you mattered to the thousands of us who logged on each day to check on you, pray for you and watch your spirit shine through pictures and the webcam. Your life was too short, but because you mattered to so many, your legacy will live on. My prayers and thoughts will continue to be with Kathi, Jeff and the pit crew. Thank you so much for all you did for Windchill and for taking the time to share his story with all of us. May peace and joy someday replace the sorrow and pain you are feeling today. Your grief is shared by many. Godspeed precious colt. You mattered so very, very much.

Folks, on my daily check I find that little Windchill has gone. I know what a loss you're suffering, having loved Animals over 65 years. I had prayed that he overcome so much, but bless his little heart he just tried hard, but served a purpose in the lives of a lot of people.God Bless all of you. He is where Jesus thought he should be. You'll do it again if the occasion comes, because that is the kind of hearts you have. Love, and prayer to all of you, Geneva Walker Texas

Dearest Windchill - Goodbye little man. Although I never met you I watched you on your videos, followed your story and felt I knew you. You have earned your wings and now you run with Barbaro. To Jeff and Kathi and all the loving volunteers who tended to little Windchill I say "Thank You"! You showed there is good in people and compassion for the ones who cannot speak for themselves. Here is a quote: "A true horseman does not look at the horse with his eyes, he looks at his horse with his heart." (Author Unknown) You all looked at Windchill with your hearts ... God bless.

To Our Beautiful Windchill - I am overcome with emotion with your passing. I am overwhelmed with sadness mostly, with anger, with thankfulness for your rescuers and caretakers, with sorrow for their hearts - but all in all I am relieved for you that you are now and forever in peace. You have brought a very heart-warming bond between all of us who know how special our animals really are - as so many have expressed in their own messages to you! Now, every time I look at the weather forecast and see the "wind chill" factor, I will be reminded of a very special horse. I will say a prayer in your honor each and every time.... You passed over the Rainbow Bridge on Leap Day, the 29th of February; which is a very unique/special day. Since you had to go, what a perfect day for a very unique/special colt! You have warmed a whole lot of hearts in your short time with us - and we thank your human family for sharing you with us. God bless you as you "run free now".... and God bless you Jeff, Kathi and ALL those who cared for him.

With deepest and heartfelt sympathy to Jeff, Kathi and all caregivers of precious little Windchill. I was absolutely heartbroken to read that Windchill had crossed the Rainbow Bridge last night. I, like so many others, have been following Windchill's progress and had come to love him and admire his strong spirit and will to live. I looked forward to reading the updates each morning and evening, and each night before I went to sleep I thanked God that you all were there to care for him but, most of all, give him the love that he had never known before. Thank you for sharing this special little angel with all of us. I will forever keep Windchill in my heart.

How can we all love and grieve so deeply for someone we have never even met? Deepest sympathies go to all of you at Raindance. I am sure that if there is such thing as a Rainbow Bridge all of us will request to see Wind Chill; maybe even before we get reunited with our own beloved pets from the past. Thanks for being such caring people and bringing Wind Chill into our own personal lives.

I write with tears in my heart and in my eyes. As incredibly painful as this is, would any of us choose to not have the moments that we shared, however briefly, with a precious loved one that goes on before us when they brought such hope and love just by knowing them. In three weeks, Windchill taught what words could never adequately say. My heart breaks that he was not able to live on and stay with Jeff and Kathi. I feel that way as so many others do that signed this book before me and I didn't even live in the same state. I can only imagine what Jeff, Kathi and his loving caretakers are feeling right now. I believe that as short as his life was that he was born for a very definite purpose and he fulfilled it completely. Maybe that's why God took him home. His job was done and it was time for rest. Sometimes when we pray for complete healing, it happens in a way that we're not really prepared for but when God answers our prayer "completely," it means no more pain or struggle. It means to healed completely and forever. I know, without doubt, that we will all see Windchill again and who knows, maybe we will then see him as the being that he truly was. While here with us, we saw him as a colt, when in reality, he was one of God's angels teaching us to love God's creatures and to love one another. You will never be forgotten, Windchill. May God bless all of you and help you to hold on to the good memories of the "I'm so glad you're here" nickers and the sound of him chomping on fresh food and the soft touch of him nudging you. If you close your eyes, you can feel the touch of his fur and hear the soft nicker. What an incredible gift he left. Hugs to each one of you. Jeri & Family

You'll be with us always, we'll all do the best we can to ensure that no other little colt or filly, or old mare or gelding or stud shall be forgotten and left behind to freeze and starve. Ever.

Now you are all sound, you will have beautiful green pastures to graze for all eternity in a place where the sun is always beautiful and warm, and where it's never cold. You will be joined by each of us one day, and we'll all be overjoyed to see you again, standing tall and strong, running and hitch-kicking rearing and feeling the warm sun on your back and gentle breezes ruffling your mane and forelock. We'll listen for your sweet nickers, and run with you when our time comes to be reunited with you. See you again, precious boy

My heart breaks for you and your team. Windchill is now in a better place and has learned that people are good and decent. You all did a world of good for him and taught him the true meaning of caring and that human compassion knows no bounds. I cannot believe how much this little colt, who I never met, has touched me. My sister called me this morning in tears -- I had gone to bed early due to a cold coming on. I couldn't believe it -- the last update I read showed that Windchill was doing well, lifting his head and calling out. I feel terrible about all the recent email that you have been receiving second guessing your decisions and your care of Windchill. There is an abundance of ignorance in our society and people that have not been involved in rescue (I have not rescued a horse, but have been involved in dog rescue), do not understand what it takes or what you give. I, for one, have no doubt that you did the best for Windchill. I cannot imagine what the team is going through right now and the loss you are feeling. Please send along our thoughts and prayers. I sent some coffee, hoping it would fuel you all to aid in Windchill's recovery. I'm still glad it's coming -- I hope you all use it to sit around and reflect on an amazing spirit and look forward to the next opportunity you all have to show off man's goodness. You all did an amazing thing and I hope you feel lucky to have been graced with the few days you had with that amazing and beautiful creature. God bless, Amanda

To Mom & Dad (Jeff&Kathi) "Now I can run on the wind, my skin like a velvet shiver on the breeze. My Hooves passing over the grass, in leaps too great to be measured. My mane tumbling like the boiling clouds. You will feel my breath in the warmth of the summer. You will hear my heartbeat,in the sounds of the sky. Now I can run in these great,wide rolling hills of time, I am truly free, here in the spaces of your heart." I will always love you ~Windchill~

I am so sad that Windchill didn't make it. I really thought he was going to be ok. Well,I guess he's ok now. He has his angel wings. God bless you all who took such good care of him, and made sure he knew he was loved, warm and comfortable even if it was for just a short time.

God richly bless all who took care of this sweet little love. He is running for sure with Barbaro! I know that in my heart the owners did the best they could with what they have. This old world and very reason for the seasons and the cold and the rain and the SPRING "New Birth" and the Winter, "Death". Is a fact of life. And for some it is just too very much to understand. A baby taken, (death) and an old one to suffer transportation to slaughter for human consumption. Life lived one moment at a time. And yes, the learning lessons that come with this experience. I loved you Windchill for the very short time I knew you. I just found the thread at Alexbrownracing.com today. 3-1-08. You are in my heart know and rest in peace dear sweet boy. I believe the picture of him resting is a very good idea! THANKS! Love, Rosalyn, Team Barbaro Pennsylvania

Thank yo so much for giving Windchill a loving forever home in your barn and hearts. For once in his life...he knew what love was. Solace for Your Grief I'll lend you for a little while My grandest foal, He said. For you to love while she's alive And mourn for when she's dead. It may be one or twenty years, Or days or months, you see. But will you, till I take her back Take care of her for me? She'll bring her charms to gladden you, And should her stay be brief You'll have treasured memories As solace for your grief. I cannot promise she will stay, Since all from earth return. But there are lessons taught on earth I want this foal to learn. I've looked the wide world over In my search for teachers true. And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes With trust, I have selected you. Now will you give her your total love? Nor think the labor vain, Nor hate me when I come To take her back again? I know you'll give her tenderness And love will bloom each day. And for the happiness you've known Forever grateful stay. But should I come and call for her Much sooner than you'd planned You'll brave the bitter grief that comes And someday you'll understand. Author Unknown

Little Windchill, I'm still in tears after learning this morning that you have left us. I've been reading all the tributes to you and you can be so proud of the love we all felt for a courageous little colt that was so neglected. We are so grateful for the love shown to you by Kathi, Jeff, Walker, Kisses, Sunday, and all those that touched you and were touched by you. You look so peaceful in your "last ride" and I know that's because you are running in a green field warmed by the sun in heaven. You'll never be cold and hungry again. You will never be forgotten here on earth. I love you Windchill. I'll see you someday.

A little colt lay cold and dying in a windswept field. Puzzled and wondering, what did I do, why doesn't anyone help me? Out of the blowing snow, a kind voice, a warm blanket, gentle hands lift and carry him to shelter where he finds the best in human nature, after experiencing the worst. Jeff & Kathy, you found a dying colt, with nothing alive but the will survive, and the need to know that there was something right in this often miserable and unforgiving world. He needed you and all the people who believed in him to come into his life; he needed to know that generosity, tenderness and strength were things that could and did come his way. He needed abundance and warmth, a full stomach and nourishing meals. And he got all of that and more. He knew you, recognized you, and acknowledged your presence in his life. He knew that finally he was valued and loved, he was sure of it to the depths of his being, beyond any shadow of a doubt. And perhaps then he said thank you, and he left. I'm so sorry, you gave him everything, but most of all, you gave him back himself. Marsh in TN

He fought the good fight, but it was just too much for his little body. Like all of you, I learned to love this special little colt from afar, and my heart is broken that he lost his fight. God bless all of you who made sure he knew love and kindness from his family before he passed. And thank you, God, for taking him gently and in his sleep. He deserved so much better than to be left in a frozen pasture to starve and freeze to death and you dear people made sure he had the very best before he left us. His life will always be a testament to the best of humanity. I'm so sorry that he's left us much too soon, but know that he is healthy and whole and once again the frisky young colt that he was meant to be. And I believe that when it's your time to join him that you will never be separated again. And for all the other horses who will have better lives because of Windchill, then his death shall not have been in vain. My deepest sympathy to all who love this magnificent horse. God bless you as you grieve his passing.

Thank you Jeff for sharing Windchill's last hours with us. Also thank you for sharing Windchill's last ride picture. I see he has his blankets and a place to rest his head. Thank you for thinking of that for him. You have shown him so much dignity. So have you Kathi and his caregiver family. Eventhough the odds were against him, you knew what you had to do. I'm betting the first time he was well enough to recognize and call out to you all, you knew. You knew you did the right thing. You gave him his dignity back and love and so much more. He knew. He loved you. His depression he was slipping in and out of, was he knew he wanted to live, his spirit, his mind was there. His body was not. He passed happy. I too am so glad he went the way he did, if he had to leave us. I hurt so bad, I feel so bad for you all that were actually with him day in and day out. Please remember all the words people have written on this board who support you and love you all. We'll miss our little guy. I am so glad the woman who won the painting gave it to you. His spirit will always be there. Kind of neat. Blessings on Raindance Farms and Safe Haven.

I am devasted and heartbroken over the death of Windchill. I was so sure that he was going to make it. I prayed day and night. I thanked God for Jeff Tucker, Kathi Davis and everyone invovled with Windchill's care. I checked in on him several times a day to see how he was progressing. I still cannot believe that he is gone. My heart is heavy, I've cried most of the day and I feel like someone in my family died. It was hard not to have high hopes for him knowing that so much effort was being put forth to ensure he did survive. I really felt that he was going to overcome the odds and be running the pastures this summer. I know that you all did the best you could for Windchill and that he knew that he was loved. Hugs to Jeff, Kathi and crew plus a special farewell kiss to little Windchill, a colt that I never met but has stolen my heart. Perhaps this story will inspire people to get involved with animal rescue organizations or at least to donate money to help the neglected. God Bless everyone who loved and cared about Windchill. I will never forget him.

Jeff, Kathi & Windchill's Care Team~ I've been struggling to find just the right words to convey my heartfelt sympathies at the loss of Windchill, but somehow the perfect ones haven't been found. However, something has become perfectly clear while I've been thinking...that is that there are things that we don't want to happen, but have to accept. There are things we don't want to know, but have to learn. And there are loved ones we can't live without, but have to let go. I hope that someday you can look up at the night sky and realize that perhaps those aren't stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pour through and shine down upon us to let us know that they are happy. In deepest Sympathy, Lisa

The Rainbow Bridge inspired by a Norse legend By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill, Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still. Where the friends of man and woman do run, When their time on earth is over and done. For here, between this world and the next, Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest. On this golden land, they wait and they play, Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day. No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness, For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness. Their limbs are restored, their health renewed, Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued. They romp through the grass, without even a care, Until one day they start, and sniff at the air. All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back, Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack. For just at that instant, their eyes have met; Together again, both person and pet. So they run to each other, these friends from long past, The time of their parting is over at last. The sadness they felt while they were apart, Has turned into joy once more in each heart. They embrace with a love that will last forever, And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.

TO MY DEAREST FAMILY Some things I'd like to say. But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay. I'm writing this from Heaven,where I dwell with God above where there' s no more tears or saddness,there is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight remember that I' m with you,every morning,noon and night.  That day I had to leave you when my life on Earth was through God picked me up and hugged me,and He said I welcome you. It' s good to have you back again,you were missed while you were gone,as for your dearest family they' ll be here later on.I need you here so badly as part of My big plan,there's so much that we have to do,to help our mortal man.Then God gave me a list of things, He wished for me to do,and foremost on that list of mine is,to watch and care for you.And I will be beside you every day and week and year,and when you' re sad,I' m standing there to wipe away the tear. And when you lie in bed at night the days chores put to flight God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night. When you think of my life on Earth,and those few loving weeks, because you' re only human they are bound to bring you tears . But do not be afraid to cry it does relieve the pain,remember there would be no flowers unless there was some rain . I wish that I could tell you of all that God has planned,but if I were to tell you,you wouldn' t understand . But one thing is for certain though my life on Earth is over,I am closer to you now than I ever was before. And to my very many friends trust God knows what is best.I' m still not far away from you I' m just beyond the crest. There are rocky roads ahead of you,and many hills to climb but together we can do it,taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and I' d like it for you too,that as you give unto the World,so the World will give to you. If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain,then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain. And now I am contented that my life it was worthwhile knowing,as I passed along the way I made somebody smile . So if you meet somebody who is down and feeling low, just lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go.When you are walking down the street and you' ve got me on your mind I' m walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. And when you feel the gentle breeze or the wind upon your face,that' s me giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace. And when it' s time for you to go from that body to be free,remember you're not going,you are coming here to me. And I will always love you from that land way up above, Will be in touch again soon ..... P.S. God sends His Love. Sending you All my deepest sympathy, Karin,ON Canada

Thank you Jeff and Kathi for Windchills last ride. It helped a little to see him at peace. I thought I was done crying but I guess I'm not because I'm doing it now. I am thankful that I got to be a small part of this story, how I had prayed for it to end differently. I really grew to love Windchill and all those that were helping him. Walker, Sunday, Kisses, Annie and Olivia and all the animals at the farm have touched my heart.Please give them all a little extra loving in the days ahead. Peace be with you all and may God comfort you.

I am heartbroken. I so strongly believed he was going to make it. With so many people around the world sending waves of hope and healing, I thought for sure - this story would end happily. As heartbroken as I am - just a stranger who watched via cyberspace - I cannot imagine the loss you must be experiencing at the farm (and the same for all those who were part of the care team). Thank you for showering Windchill with so much love and for making the last of an all too short life, wonderful. Thank you, especially, for sharing those days with all of us. I hope we all grow from the beauty of this story. May the strength, hope, and gentility that Windchill so gracefully carried - continue on in our actions. May we honor the legacy of his life by paying forward his blessings and extending our generosity to lives less fortunate, to voices unheard or dismissed, and to those dependent on the compassion of others for well-being and the promise of life. Thank you Windchill. Thank you Raindance.

My condolences to Jeff and Kathi and all of Windchill's care givers. I know your hearts are broken as mine is as well. I checked on Windchill several times a day and prayed many prayers for his healing. I am blessed to have been able to know Windchill through Jeff's and Kathi's generosity in sharing his story with the world. Jeff spoke of Windchill's "quiet determination" in life, so it was appropos that he waited until Jeff left his side to quietly leave this world. He didn't die alone, I'm sure his friend Walker saw to that. I noticed in a logo on your site for Rain Dance Farms that it says, "Home of Windchill." I hope you leave that because your farm was the only "home" that Windchill ever had. Thank you for providing such loving care to Windchill at the end of his brief life. He finally knew what love felt like and he departed this life with a full belly. Please take comfort in that and know you did everything you could for Windchill. My prayer for Windchill's Legacy is that it will bring awareness of the cruelty inflicted on animals to all the people visiting this site. Hopefully we have all been changed by knowing Windchill. We must never forget. Ever. We must be diligent in our efforts to be observant of animals that are not being cared for properly and we must not hesitate to get involved. That might be "pitching some hay" or "making the call" or whatever you can do to help, in memory of Windchill. That would be his greatest legacy. I wonder how many people saw Windchill in that field during the months that he was at that hell on earth and continued on with their day and did nothing? Windchill, you will not be forgotten. You will remain with me for the rest of my days. Good night sweet prince. Godspeed.

To Jeff, Kathi, Walker, all the special caregivers and most of all Windchill... I have no good words to express how sorry I am for your loss. I have been following Windchill's daily progress (numerous times daily) and have sent prayers and positive thoughts constantly with hopes of seeing Windchill running through the pasture in the weeks to come. I am so grateful to know that Windchill was able to receive the love, attention and care in the final 3 weeks of his short life and touched the hearts of some many people around the world. May the little guy rest in peace and all the people who loved Windchill find peace in knowing how much he touched our hearts. Thank you Jeff & Kathi (and everyone who helped in his care)for giving Windchill the chance to know he was loved. (((Hugs)))

Our Lord said, "Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted." (Matthew 5:4). Our weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. That is a promise. I join in your mourning for Windchill, and I rejoice that he was able to experience and, yes, understand, unconditional love and compassion from a group of truly extraordinary people. We have all been touched by him and by you all. You are people I would be proud and honored to call friends. The LORD says that if we delight ourselves in Him, He will give us the desires of our hearts. I have no doubt that you will see Windchill again--strong and joyful. I pray God bless and comfort you all.

Dear Jeff, Kathi, and all of Windchill's Team, I can hardly type this through my tears. I am so sorry. There are no words to express how sad I feel-my heart is literally hurting. I can only imagine how you all feel. Jeff-thank you letting us into Windchill's and your lives. You conveyed Windchill's spirit and determination so eloquently with your many daily updates and, through you, we all came to know and love a horse we never even met. The thousands of people across the nation and the world who were hoping for his recovery and praying for him is a tribute to you and Kathi and everyone who so selflessly devoted their time, energy, and love to Windchill. My only consolation right now is that for the past three weeks you gave him love, warmth, and food and he was not alone anymore. THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE FOR HIM. He knew he was finally loved. I will pray for you all and may you be comforted by knowing you did what was right and you did the absolute best you could do for him. NO ONE could have done any better. Please give Walker alot of pats and hugs from me also. I AM SO SORRY. Please keep us updated on how you are all doing and how we can donate to the fund in Windchill's memory. I just can't believe he is gone-he looked so good when I saw him lifting his head and kicking his little legs on the webcam yesterday. Good night Windchill.

I'm so sorry that WindChill didn't survive this world, but I know he is thriving in the beautiful Kingdom beyond Rainbow Bridge. Jeff and Kathy, I followed this story through the ABR website (home of the Fans of Barbaro) and I can only thank God that Windchill passed in his sleep knowing he was loved and cherished. You are very special people and the world has been introduced to you through Windchill. I think that may be his legacy to you! As hard as it is, please try to forgive his abusers. I believe they will suffer realizing what their neglect has led to. We will all be better for trying to forgive and looking for the good that will inevitably come from the Story of Windcill. I thank God that Windchill found you and the supporting team who aided him in his struggle for life. HE LIVES ON and we will see him Again! Hang on to that promise! RUN free, little Colt! Thank you for inspiring us to keep fighting for life and for all horses! dory

May God heal your broken hearts and may all of you who have taken care of this precious animal be forever blessed. I need to believe that his death is not in vain and that through this a new awareness will be brought about that it is not alright to abuse one of Gods Creatures. My husband and I have also taken in many abused animals and have done what we can to help. We have mules and donkeys, unfortunately, many people view these wonderful creatures as throw aways. I will be praying for you all, thank you for making a difference. Sincerely, Rtich and Cindy Jarvi

I can not believe he is gone! My heart is breaking right along with all of the many people who so loved this beautiful brave boy. Jeff and Kathi, thank you, and all the volunteers, for rescuing him and loving him with all the best in you. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this darkest night of the empty stall. His life was far too short but his shining spirit will live on for as long as there are people who remember him with so much love. He was an old soul I believe, he had a mission here and he stayed as long as he could. Perhaps he always knew his time was short and he managed to pack a lifetime into those few weeks. I know when all of you who were there for him look back on this some day,the miracle that was Windchill will resonate for the rest of your lives. I plan to hang a windchime in the memory of Angel Windchill (how it hurts to speak of him now as an angel) and whenever I hear the chimes in the soft breeze I will think of him at play, cantering in the fields of Heaven on strong swift legs. It is my deepest belief that all our departed horses, animal companions, really are at Rainbow Bridge and they wait for us there until that joyful day when we are all reunited. Rest in peace Windchill, it was our great honor to be your friend. Thank you for sharing the blessing of your remarkable journey. Sue

Little Windchill, I cannot express the sorrow that I feel for loosing you. I was so hoping to meet you in person, but I guess that was not in the greater plan. I would like to leave something for you. The following was a poem that was read at the grave of John Wayne in 1979 and also at the grave of my 4 year old son when he died from cancer in 1981. The poem means a lot to me and that is the reason a give it to you: Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn’s rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. Be at peace little Windchill and know that so many miss you and wait until we can run with you in the sun drenched meadows. God bless you. Love, Jan

My dearest little Windchill, You were so tired yesterday evening and you took a little nap, didn't you.(?) Walker was by your side in your safe haven, just as he had been since you arrived at your new home. And you became strong and got bigger in your new home because you had such wonderful parents and frens there; and they took the best of care of you - and you knew how much they loved you. And oh how they loved you; they loved you so. And everywhere all over the country and in other parts of the world people heard about you Windchill, and they prayed for you and joined your family in trying to help you in every way they could - and you knew how much the world loved you. You finally knew that YOU mattered. And you gave all you had to try to recover from the awful life that had been a part of your past. You worked at getting better all the time and at every chance you had. Your tremendous spirit gave everyone else strength and hope. You see Windchill, you were, all this time, the strongest one of us all. You went through a terrible time and for some reason, this sometimes goes with life as life is not always fair. Oh how we all wish you didn't have to endure the suffering that you did. It has broken our hearts. But God chose a mommy and daddy for you that got you out of the miserable cold and they gave you a home and shelter and food and medicine (I know, yuk!) and friendship and helped you get back on your feet. God chose a wonderful family for you and they fell in love with you and they shared your story with the world - and the world fell in love with you too. But, Windchill, there is a Supreme Being out there and He knows what is best. I think you have probably met Him by now. While we wanted you to live here on earth with us, He already had other plans for you. So, when you took your nap Friday evening, he arranged for you to live in a new place, his place. And you woke up you were in God's place, and everything was different, wasn't it? All the hope and all the miracles we prayed for, for you, took place as you went to your new home. You became strong and well and whole again and our prayers were answered. But God's plans included that you would live with him, not us- while we would continue to live down on earth for a while longer. You see Windchill, you are a miracle. Through you God let us see that we have some very hard work to do here on earth. Some people are bad and we must learn to help all people become good people. We must not hurt one another. We must help one another. We are all God's creatures, and we are meant to protect one another...just like Walker, kitty, your mommy and daddy, and your many frens protected you when they took care of you on earth once they found you out in the bitter cold. It is all about 'love'. We must remember to love. We have learned that through Barbaro, and we have again learned it in coming to know you. You are a hero Windchill. And you have set a mighty example for all of us. When we finish with our work on earth, do you know what will happen? We will come to be with you and then we will all be together again. For ever and ever. He gave you some time with us here on earth. It was a time where you found out that you could be loved here. And it was a time that we found out we could work together to help a someone special (yes, YOU!), in need. The Lord gave us time to fall in love with you - and you to learn to trust and love your mom and dad and many other frens here on earth. --- But, Windchill, you were chosen by God to live a special sort of life. Through your weakest moments, you were still stronger than life inself. Your spirit embodied something far greater than what your sick little earthly body could withstand. But, God kept your body going long enough so that we could enjoy you as a special gift to us here on earth before you went to heaven. You taught us many things about life and about what is important about life. God let you teach us these miraculous things because he believed in you so strongly; he knew you were the one to do this job...and you did a wonderful job. And your mom and dad shared you with all of us and that made it all the more possible for many of us to learn from you what was important in life. Our lives have been so strongly touched by you...and they will never be the same again So, we have our work to do. But, you must please make several promises to me and to those that you love and that love you so dearly: ***You must be at peace in your new home. You'll see us sad and crying for a while. After some time, you will still see us sad and crying, for that is what we do when we miss someone, especially someone as special as you. Understand that we miss you but that we will do our work here and continue to move forward with our lives. This plan is God's plan for us, and no matter how sad we are, we will live God's will. ***And, Windchill, you must remember how much we all love you and to also pray for those who love you and took such good care of you. It is a very hard time for your mommy and daddy and Walker and kitty and your frens. But if there is anything we have learned by having your mommy and daddy share you with us - it is that we must be kind to one another, care for one another, and we must work together to make this world on earth a better place to be. We are all so proud of you. And your mommy and daddy are extra proud of you. Please don't ever forget how proud you made your mom and dad, not ever. You are the apple of their eye and it will take them some time to get used to the fact that you are not living with them as you had been since they found you. We will keep them in our prayers so that they are OK. I am so sorry for your time of pain and so sad that you couldn't stay and live here with us on earth. But, I will do what I know is right. And I will reach your mommy and daddy and will look out for them --- as will many other of your and their frens. Live a big life in heaven sweet boy. And know that we love you very, very much. I'm not going to say good-bye to you; I will see you again (and in person, not just in pictures)! In the mean time, I will just say 'so long'. May our Heavenly Father, Barbaro, and all your little frens and big frens guard you and keep you. And, don't forget to share with them the story ofyour experience you had the last 3 weeks you spent on earth with your beloved family. This prayer is for you and your family: "May the road rise up to meet you- May the wind be always at your back- May the sun shine warm upon your face- The rains fall soft upon your fields- And until we meet again,- May God hold you in the palm of his hand." -Irish Blessing With much love to you forever Windchill, -your friend, Candice

You worked at getting better all the time and at every chance you had. Your tremendous spirit gave everyone else strength and hope. You see Windchill, you were, all this time, the strongest one of us all. You went through a terrible time and for some reason, this sometimes goes with life as life is not always fair. Oh how we all wish you didn't have to endure the suffering that you did. It has broken our hearts. But God chose a mommy and daddy for you that got you out of the miserable cold and they gave you a home and shelter and food and medicine (I know, yuk!) and friendship and helped you get back on your feet. God chose a wonderful family for you and they fell in love with you and they shared your story with the world - and the world fell in love with you too. But, Windchill, there is a Supreme Being out there and He knows what is best. I think you have probably met Him by now. While we wanted you to live here on earth with us, He already had other plans for you. So, when you took your nap Friday evening, he arranged for you to live in a new place, his place. And you woke up you were in God's place, and everything was different, wasn't it? All the hope and all the miracles we prayed for, for you, took place as you went to your new home. You became strong and well and whole again and our prayers were answered. But God's plans included that you would live with him, not us- while we would continue to live down on earth for a while longer. You see Windchill, you are a miracle. Through you God let us see that we have some very hard work to do here on earth. Some people are bad and we must learn to help all people become good people. We must not hurt one another. We must help one another. We are all God's creatures, and we are meant to protect one another...just like Walker, kitty, your mommy and daddy, and your many frens protected you when they took care of you on earth once they found you out in the bitter cold. It is all about 'love'. We must remember to love. We have learned that through Barbaro, and we have again learned it in coming to know you. You are a hero Windchill. And you have set a mighty example for all of us. When we finish with our work on earth, do you know what will happen? We will come to be with you and then we will all be together again. For ever and ever. He gave you some time with us here on earth. It was a time where you found out that you could be loved here. And it was a time that we found out we could work together to help a someone special (yes, YOU!), in need. The Lord gave us time to fall in love with you - and you to learn to trust and love your mom and dad and many other frens here on earth. --- But, Windchill, you were chosen by God to live a special sort of life. Through your weakest moments, you were still stronger than life inself. Your spirit embodied something far greater than what your sick little earthly body could withstand. But, God kept your body going long enough so that we could enjoy you as a special gift to us here on earth before you went to heaven. You taught us many things about life and about what is important about life. God let you teach us these miraculous things because he believed in you so strongly; he knew you were the one to do this job...and you did a wonderful job. And your mom and dad shared you with all of us and that made it all the more possible for many of us to learn from you what was important in life. Our lives have been so strongly touched by you...and they will never be the same again So, we have our work to do. But, you must please make several promises to me and to those that you love and that love you so dearly: ***You must be at peace in your new home. You'll see us sad and crying for a while. After some time, you will still see us sad and crying, for that is what we do when we miss someone, especially someone as special as you. Understand that we miss you but that we will do our work here and continue to move forward with our lives. This plan is God's plan for us, and no matter how sad we are, we will live God's will. ***And, Windchill, you must remember how much we all love you and to also pray for those who love you and took such good care of you. It is a very hard time for your mommy and daddy and Walker and kitty and your frens. But if there is anything we have learned by having your mommy and daddy share you with us - it is that we must be kind to one another, care for one another, and we must work together to make this world on earth a better place to be. We are all so proud of you. And your mommy and daddy are extra proud of you. Please don't ever forget how proud you made your mom and dad, not ever. You are the apple of their eye and it will take them some time to get used to the fact that you are not living with them as you had been since they found you. We will keep them in our prayers so that they are OK. I am so sorry for your time of pain and so sad that you couldn't stay and live here with us on earth. But, I will do what I know is right. And I will reach your mommy and daddy and will look out for them --- as will many other of your and their frens. Live a big life in heaven sweet boy. And know that we love you very, very much. I'm not going to say good-bye to you; I will see you again (and in person, not just in pictures)! In the mean time, I will just say 'so long'. May our Heavenly Father, Barbaro, and all your little frens and big frens guard you and keep you. And, don't forget to share with them the story ofyour experience you had the last 3 weeks you spent on earth with your beloved family. This prayer is for you and your family: "May the road rise up to meet you- May the wind be always at your back- May the sun shine warm upon your face- The rains fall soft upon your fields- And until we meet again,- May God hold you in the palm of his hand." -Irish Blessing With much love to you forever Windchill, -your friend, Candice

Does anyone know how long Windchill was laying out in that field. And how long he had gone without food? I have followed the story of this little trooper from beginning to end. I feel absolutely devastated. What kind of women or people were they to let him starve to death and leave him out in the field. With no barn to go into. How do you know how the other horses treated him. Jeffery did you go that way everyday or was it just chance you heard him and saw him in the field. Thank God you did hear him crying as he would have died a awful slow death. Thank you all for what you done for this colt called WINDCHILL. Joanna Stermer

Windchill- you were here but for such a short time. You brought love and caring with you....bringing humanity together in quest of the goal of keeping you here. May we silly people not forget the lesson you came here to teach. Godspeed little one. Kathy, Jeff and the care team- I wish I had some words to comfort you, but there are none. This was a special little guy in all your lives, and his spirit and love will surround you always, as you did for him here on earth. He came to you for a reason. You were the vehicle for his message.

Even though I know Windchill is gone, the first thing I did this morning was check the website and guestbook. I know I will continue to do this for a long time! The connection this little guy brought to us is just incredible. Some people may think we're crazy but we all know the truth. THIS is important. THIS was amazing. And WINDCHILL did it. We can ALL stay connected through the Foundation and Windchill's life will NOT have been in vain. Thanks again to all who helped and thanks to those who have written poems and verses in the guestbook. Even though I cry as I read them, they've helped me so much.

I didn't get a chance to log on yesterday to see how Windchill was doing and now I'm devastated. I can only say that I have considered it an honor to share his story along with the nation's animal lovers and to route for the most beautiful little colt I have ever seen. I can only say thank you to Jeff and Kathy for sharing their lives with me and opening the doors of their barn to catch glimpses of Windchills progress. In Garth Brook's words "I could have missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss The Dance". Rest in Peace.

Dearest little Wind Chill at last you are free of pain. May you run in the beautiful pastures with all the other abused animals that have been harmed by humans that cannot understand that each animal has a heart and soul and brings a gift love and blessing to humankind. Run free little Angel. In your last few days of life your human keepers were able to teach you that most humans are loving and kind, you will be missed by them and the rest of the world.

3/2/08 It is still hard to accept that Windchill is gone. Thanks for posting "Windchill's Last Ride." He is at peace. While we mourn the passing of this brave soul and have loss the physical presence of him, we rejoice at having been brought together. We grieve along with Kathi and Jeff, all the volunteers and caregivers. What hurts the heart is how Windchill was left to die, what brings joy is how he was rescued. We all wanted a miracle, we got one, it wasn't the miracle we wanted, but God gave us a miracle for this little horse to have done as well as he did for as long as did. Windchill went peacefully in his stall, warm, loved, with Walker standing with him and barn kitty, with horses that gave him 'kisses'. The tears flow for a life loss way too soon, and for all the people who have come to love this little one known as Windchill, we must be grateful for all of those at Raindance Farms. Thank you for all you gave to Windchill and to us, for posting updates and pics, for giving your hearts for this little one. Windchill, we miss you little guy, enjoy your new home and health. God, bless us who are hurting at the loss of one of your creatures, give us comfort and give special blessings to all at Raindance Farms as they grieve the passing of the little horse names Windchill. Jeanne and Monty the Fjord in MI. PS. Give all your friends, human and animal, an extra hug.

Deepest sympathy to all who were touched by this story. Regrets that Windchill has short painful life. He and Raindance Farms have taught us humanity, there are heroes in this life. If this story changes one heart to love and have compassion then that is good. Regrets that humans have much to learn about compassion, decency, and empathy. God Bless you all for sharing with us during this difficult time at the Farm.

I was watching this morning the camera and walked away for a few moments and missed you leaving. Kind of may sound wierd but wanted to give Windchill a final salute! I burst out in tears when I saw the truck and trailor gone. I hope you have a safe trip to Anoka, and even safer ride home. It will be a tough one, that I am sure of! Just know as you take Windchill on his final journey here on earth, that he has so many people watching and praying that he is now free from the pain of human negligence (stupidity). He knew when you picked him up on 2/9/08, that you were the "angels" that he had always waited and hoped would find him. and you did! You showed Windchill the love, support and never ending compassion that an animal deserves. They can't ask for help, but the (3) adults supposedly responsible for him COULD HAVE. Jeff you may not ever be able to forgive these people for what they did. I know I won't!!!!!!! They destroyed a "colts" life, who knows what Windchill could have become. These are words spoken in true anger, simply because, this "colt" could have had it all!!!!!!! But they chose to leave it in a field! DISPICABLE (sp)! I hope to see that they go to jail, have to pay a hefty fine, and CAN NEVER EVER HAVE ANY ANIMALS AGAIN!!! They should also be put out in a pasture with no food or water for an extended period of time, in sub zero weather! Sorry people, but when you agree to take on responsibilities, then do it! If you can't, call for help, don't just ignore it! There are so many people out there that are willing to help, utilize it! We all end up happier in the end! Jeff and Kathi, as you go through the next few days, hold your heads high and know that you truly made a difference in Windchills and all of our lives! Kudos to you and thanks for everything you have done! You like Windchill will never be forgotten! We will be up in a few weeks, to see Walker, and shake your hands and say thanks in person. The money that was sent in for a donation, is now going to be matched by 4 of my friends, whom I have shared the story with. They aren't huge animal lovers, but they are now! In ending this, THANK YOU will never be enough. If you need anything, send an email, and will help you with whatever you need, cleaning stalls, feeding, you name it we are there to help. Til then.....God Speed Windchill, we will make sure your pain isn't in vane, and that the terrible people who did this to you ALL three are held accountable. Thank you Windchill for giving the world hope! With tears flying down my cheeks, Good bye little guy, YOU WILL BE MISSED, AND NEVER FORGOTTEN! til we meet again!

As I wrote briefly last night, the little boy didn't die in a icy cold storm, alone and in misery. It's one horse that had the luck of being rescued.

Good morning in Heaven Windchill! Your Daddy is having a very hard time going on without you. We are, too. You were such a big part of our lives for a very short time but oh boy, what a difference you've made in the world! Your Daddy plans to start a foundation and we know your spirit will lead the way. We love you Windchill, your life mattered to all of us! Today we know you are romping in Heaven with little Bucky who gently left us on Wednesday. He also had a mission of love and hope, I know you two are chatting it up in between your games of tag with the rest of the Heavenly Herd. Happy trails in Heaven! Love you always, little one.

To all of you that did so much for Windchill, I know you are in terrible pain, but please know that millions of people are lifting you up in prayer. I believe with all my heart that the little fellow was sent here for a special purpose and if only for a short time he united so many people for a good common cause, his worldly life had more meaning than any of us will understand until we all meet again in paradise. May God Bless all that mourn for Windchill and all animals that suffer because of mankind's failures.

It is difficult to think while the tears run down my face--Windchill you touched our hearts - you brought out emotions in us that we thought had been lost--you are truly loved - you will remain in the the hearts and minds of not only myself but so many others. Windchill you will not be forgotten... Your dying was not in vain, it has brought attention to the plight of many animals--many who might now be helped by the Windchill Foundation. I know you are so grateful to your caregivers, so am I. They gave their all - real life heroes.

I have never been much of a "horse" person, but when I heard the story about "Windchill" it pulled at my heart strings. I followed the news as much as I could about the poor little pony, and updated my sister, who is from North Dakota, and was very concerned also. last night, before falling asleep, I heard that he had 'passed'. I could have cried! Reading the article in todays Sunday Duluth Tribune had me in tears. Thank You to those who TRIED to bring him back to health. It's wonderful to know there are people like you still out there in today's world. "Windchill" will be missed by many!!

I know you are happy and healthy where you are now and I know I will see you on the other side and look forward to looking into your beautiful eyes and thanking you for all the people you brought together here to help make sure that others do not suffer as you did.

I cannot stop crying since finding out about Windchill's death a few hours ago. I really thought the little guy was going to pull through. So many people here in the Arrowhead had been talking about him and praying for him. To find that his story has reached beyond our frozen region is touching. May Windchill's story reach beyond those of us who already care for and nurture animals so we may bring an end to animal cuelty. To all of you at Raindance I send my deepest heartfelt sympathy and I know you will continue to do amazing work.

I did not know of Windchill until I read of his passing on the Best Friends Network. As I read the account of his rescue & of the care you, his new family, gave to him my tears were those of love for this little guy, gratitude for all the love & care you gave him, & anger that anyone could stand by & neglect him the way they did. He depended on them & they failed him!!! You, however, made up to him many times over for that uncaring, unloving neglect. Not from revenge, but someone needs to be held accountable so that this does not happen again. The worst & the best in people was demonstrated in this story of brave Windchill. I hope a better place has taken you in with all the warmth & love that you deserve.

Windchill I always rushed to my computer every morning to read your updates. I just couldn"t believe that I was reading that you passed away. I"m just heart sick over this. I know in my heart that had you not been starved so badly that you would have made it. I sooo looked forward to the day I would read that you were up and about on your own.And you were so close to achieving that. At least you finally got to know human love and care. To feel love and to give love. You have touched so many people with your courage and deep will to live. I was glad to see that your Dad has left your name on the list of animals residing at Raindance farms. You deserve to be there. You will never be forgotten. Millions of hearts are trying to mend now. Millions of eyes are watching to see that there is justice for you. Justice for Windchill is what needs to be. You are gone but will never be forgotten. Thanks to all who gave you all that special care and attention you so deserved. What a sad sad day this is for me.

I was so deeply saddened to learn that this brave, courageous baby passed away. I am grieving as though he were my own. Like so many others, I monitored Windchill’s progress several times a day. I was so sure he would defy the odds and make it; I prayed for his full recovery, but God chose not to heal him here. For him now, there is no more suffering, and one day we will see him as he was meant to be. I hope some good will come out of his unspeakable ordeal and that justice will be served. Good night, little one. Rest in peace. Katie from Brooklyn Park, MN

God Bless You Windchill, I am sorry that I was unable to see you here on earth, but I am a firm believer that animals go to heaven and all of us who remember you and want to see you will see you there grazing in heavenly pastures. While you life was unfairly cut short, it was a life that was filled with unselfish lessons of love, hope, survival, and strength. While you were treated so poorly by one human, you never lost your faith in humanity and was willing to trust and love again. We can learn so much from you and your life. Thank you for that!!!!! Also thank you for fueling my passion for fighting for the rights of animals big and small and doing my part to ensure that animals get the love, care and attention they deserve. You will always survive in my heart you magical, beautiful, amazing animal. Love Always -- Melody

Your love for Windchil somehow came through a cable and into our homes. Everyone had the experience of loving him through you and everyone else who was there touching, feeding, and holding him. I watched your report on the news video. You said you did not know how to thank us, WE ALL OWE EVERYONE THERE OUR THANKS. Because of Windchill all of our hearts were warmed and touched. It will also cause me sorrow to know that this cold colt warmed us. As I know look at the updates in his guestbook we are all silent. This is out of respect.

I also want to say I'm sorry to hear you were apparently getting some negative comments. I see nothing but good in all that you have done. I hope you can "tune out" such comments & consider the source. God bless you all.

My heart stopped today when I read of Windchills passing on my cat list. Yes, even a cat list watched him. I am soooo very sorry for all whose lives have been turned over to caring for him and to all who have wondered and prayed for him. He was truly a remarkable being and a reminder of our inner selves. What is truly good, through the evil. Take care of him with the love and kindness he was given to you. He experiance the worse and the best that humane nature has to offer.

My dearest Windchill, it is with tears in my eyes and a broken heart that I write this to you. I've prayed for you and Jeff and all the rest of the heroes that did their very best to save your precious life. I guess God saw your sweet soul and brave heart and needed you by his side. You were and are an inspiration to me, and I will miss you terribly even though I never had the honor to meet you. But at least in your last days you got to expierience what true kindness some "humans" are capable of. I hope some day to I get to see you in Heaven, that would be a true honor. God bless you and Jeff and all the others on the care team. They are all heroes. Rest in peace little angel, you will be missed by myself and thousands of others. God bless you Jeff, you are an inspiration to me and many others. Dean Stops

* Jeff & Kathi, it 'just keeps on coming'. 2 flats on the way to Windchill's cremation! Think Our Little Braveheart is trying to tell his REAL parents that he didn't mean to pass, it's that his little heart just gave out ( b/c of starvation before his REAL parents found him!) Altho, this has been a very sad plus frustrating day for you, pl. take it as a sign fr. W.C.! He didn't mean it to happen this way w/all YOUR GREAT LOVE & CARE.. it's just Our Little Braveheart's heart gave out b/c of what he endured BEFORE YOU FOUND HIM!! My thoughts & prayers remain w/ you both!

The reality is settling in, along with the overwhelming sadness. This did not have to happen. This entire tragedy was man-made. I have not been this totally sad since the loss of my 7 yr old Fjord, Olaf, in 2006. I will say this, after loosing him so suddenly, I had a necropsy performed and then had him cremated. Some solice was given that I brought him home...his spirit was galloping along the mountains in Heaven....but having his ashes have brought me some comfort, I hope having Windchill's ashes will bring all of you some comfort, not soon, but sometime and it will help to have 'him home.' God bless.... Jeanne

Good night in heaven little Windchill. I love you and miss you so. I never got to meet you but your dad shared you with the world in a way that we all fell in love with your spirit and fight for life and love. We know you had the best of love for three weeks and maybe that was enough. You had a purpose and your legacy will live on to help others. Jeff and Kathi.. you must be hurting so much. Thank you for sharing and all you have done. God bless you and precious Windchill.

3/3/08 Jeff and Kathi, could your day have been any worse? Two flat tires would ruin a good day. I just wanted to thank you again for sharing Windchill with us. I have not a doubt that he is in heaven. Some people don't believe that animals go to heaven, but that doesn't make sense to me. God gives life to all. Anyone that has had an animal knows the love that they bring. They have souls, just look into their eyes. people use that as an excuse. If they believe that animals don't have souls then they don't have to feel bad about the way they treat them. Oh how wrong they are. While I hope that those responsible for the mistreatment of Windchill are punished under the law, I pity them when they have to answer to God when He asks, "How did you treat those without a voice, how did you treat the four legged and those entrusted to you? for they were Mine." Someone said that they were going to hang a windchime for Windchill. I like that. I will do that also. Please know that I mourn with you. Bless you all.

Bless your heart, you will be missed! When I was in high school, my dad owned a completely gorgeous stallion. He was a Hunterverian, the German warmbloods. He was HUGE! Very sweet, not that I wasn't always careful with him, but he was just lovely and never really gave me cause for concern. We successfully bred several mares that summer. One morning, I got to the barn, and one baby had been stillborn. I sat on a bale of hay and cried for an hour. I am grateful to learn that you, sweet Windchill, knew you were loved. Please know you will be missed and rememberd. Sending Reiki and love, Kelly

You are right...many of us are hurting, too and we find comfort in visiting this site and continuing to share our thoughts. I thank you for that. I pray that the days and weeks become easier for you and those who tirelessly worked to give Windchill such a wonderful few, short weeks. Please know that the little guy will not be forgotten. For such a little colt he took the biggest space in so many lives. What a blessing you were to him.

My heart breaks hearing the news of WIndchill's passing. Some will say that this colt was "only" a horse. I beg to differ. So many of us became enthralled with his recovery and prayed for that recovery. As a lover of horses and a previous owner of horses since age 5 I know how you get attached to those wonderful creatures. I had appaloosa's and my first horse Dusty will forever be etched in my mind. Even though I am now over 50 and no longer have horses I felt the need to let you know we all feel the pain of this loss of a braveheart who stole our hearts.

Jeff and Kathi's love and gentle care healed your spirit and nurtured your soul; they showed the world that your life did matter, and when your poor damaged body could no longer contain that huge spirit, sadly you had to move on. Your courage is an inspiration and I will never forget you. Rest in Peace little man.

His story and the Raindance farm's and friends courageous efforts will remain in my heart and especially knowing all the people his story has touched; hopefully, Windchill's legacy will be that of serious reminder of responsibility to people who have the care of animals in their lives. Thank you isn't enough for your kind and generous humane actions. God Bless Windchill and his real family and horse friends at your horse farm.

3/2/08 I'm sorry, I just came back to say good night and realized that I put 3/3/08 on my last post I think. The weekend has been a bad one for all of us. I just read Windchills letter to the children, that sweet little guy. Jeff, you really could write a childrens book. I have never felt so connected to a group of people I have never met before. Nor to come to love an animal as much as my own with out ever coming face to face. I really thought I could make a road trip this summer to see Windchill running in the field. I am so thank-ful to have a been a part of Windchills life and I thank Jeff and Kathi for that. Good Night. I will be back tomorrow. Love you all.

Dear Jeff, Thank you for your update again tonight on your trip. I know how hard it was for you to take him on his last ride and I am glad you are home safe. I still keep coming back to your website the past two days, as I have since I saw the story about Windchill and you on FOX news, and am still in tears(reading your update and typing this)as I have been the past two days grieving over the loss of Baby Windchill. It is so sad but it is comforting to read your posts and Windchill's guest book. I don't know why this story has affected me and all the others as much as it has-it was as if Windchill belonged to each of us even though we never had the honor to meet him in person. I guess it is due to your love, caring, and compassion that shone through in your writing-relating his personality, his spirit, and his gallant effort to survive-that we all came to know and love him as if he was our own. The only thing I can keep telling myself is that he is no longer in any pain and I know he must be happy where he is and is watching over you, Kathi, Walker, the other horses, the kittys, and his team of caretakers. Thank you for being such a compassionate, caring person and for taking such good care of him and loving him. I am glad he found you and Kathi and all your volunteers. You gave everything you had to save him and I am grateful he felt wanted and loved before he passed over. I know you might not believe this but I had a dream last night I was in a group of large fields that went on forever and had trees throughout. The sun was shining, it was warm, and there was a perfect rainbow over one field extending from the ground on one side over to the other side. There were animals and people there and I saw Windchill there right under the rainbow! It was so real. The other strange thing is that I would have turned the channel that day when Windchill's story was televised because I can't watch or hear about animal abuse-I get too upset and literally sick. But they said in the lead up to the story it was a good story about a horse. It is not the ending that I wanted for his story but I am glad I watched that day. Through your generosity in sharing his story with us it brought thousands of people together who prayed for and encouraged Windchill and all of you there caring for him. It showed us there are so many good people out there who care. It is a story of hope, of love, of relationships, not only for Windchill, but for other animals and people as well. There are many of us that are still out here waiting for your next update and we are still listening Jeff. Please take care of yourselves and we continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Good Night Baby Windchill. I miss you.

Jeff & Kathi: All day today I've been drawn to your website, looking at the picture of Windchill ready for his last ride; then seeing the other pictures you posted in happier times and tears just keep coming. Tears of sadness for his passing, for your grief because it's so very evident you are heartbroken, for the injustice that was done to that defenseless little colt. Yes, it's difficult to think of forgiveness right now. It will come in time..maybe not in the form of forgiveness but in resolve. I recall in my first note about him I said God put him here for a purpose. Many people have expressed it also. Just reading the letters in the guestbook, from all walks of life, young, old--all coming together with the same purpose--to express grief and sympathy to you and Windchill's other caregivers as well as giving you encouragement that you did everything possible-and more-to help him survive; and one day you will be with him again. There is no doubt whatsoever that everyone at Raindance Farms did an heroic attempt to save Windchill's life. Sadly, he was beyond help...BUT...he did more in 3 short weeks for thousands of people as is evident by the notes of encouragement during his care and now during the grieving period. He touched so many with his story of what happens to those creatures that have no voice. He has brought an awareness (through your eloquent words) of the horrors of abuse. You have given Windchill a voice and he is speaking loudly to all of us! Even though my dog is far from neglected, I, for one, have been giving her extra hugs and attention--it shows in her eyes how much she appreciates it. Thank you, Jeff..for helping US ALL through our grief at losing Windchill. It's unimaginable how difficult this has been for you. Take care and God Bless. GodSpeed to sweet little Windchill.

I hope some sense or Normalacy returns, for all of you. You will never ever forget him, nor quit loving him. But now we have to make sure the people who did this are held accountable. That is the final fight for that little guy who kept you up at all hours and whom the world came together to love! God Bless you.....as you venture off and slowly wean yourself from here, know that we are always here listening to you. Sharing with you the joys and the sorrows.

Dear Jeff and Kathi, having lost a precious horse too, I understand your pain. We lost Cody in May of last year. It still hurts badly but when I look at his pictures it helps so much. There will always be a big part of my heart that is gone. It went with Cody. Windchill took another bit of it too. But, there is enough left for the other 4 horses we have. Horses just get to you, really, really get to you. Thank you for continuing to write your thoughts. I will keep checking back to see how you both are doing. Take care. Maggie

My heart broke when I read that you had passed. Your time on earth was over and you passed on to greener pastures...you will be missed by many good people, Jeff, Kathi, your volunteer care team and all of us in cyberspace. I am glad you got to meet the loving caring people who cared for you so hopefully, so that you knew good humans. I am very sorry that you were ever with the cold unfeeling subhumans who let you down. I am picturing my Cinnamon, who I lost Jan. 28 this year, galloping by your side. She always looked after the foals even though she never had one of her own. Big hugs to your caregivers- especially Jeff and Kathi, I think I know how you feel...your hearts are hurting...and I wish I could tell you how to ease that but I haven't found a way to do that. Windchill, you were very much loved. Your nickers imprinted on hearts and souls, will live on here forever. I hope, no make that plan, to meet you at the Rainbow Bridge. With much Love, Viv

02/03/08 Good Morning Jeff, I find myself still going to the computer to look for updates on Windchill and please know My heart and thoughts have been constantly with you and Kathi these past couple of days. I purchased 2 of Deb's posters of Windchill and I will put them in the feed room of my barn where I can say Good Morning and Good Night to Windchill every day when I am taking care of my horses. I feel that by putting his pictures in the feed room it is my way of knowing he will never be hungry again and he will always have shelter to protect him. I also purchased several other items that will keep Windchill near wherever I go. I was always taught that things happen for a reason and in Windchill's case even though we don't understand it now, hopefully his terrible life will bring a lot more awareness to the neglect and abuse horses suffer. I pray Windchill will not have suffered and died in vain and we can get tougher on boarding stables and neglectful owners. Thank you for fighting to save Windchill even though the odds were stacked against him. I would have done the same and gone to any lenghts to save him. He will be missed but never forgotten. Nancy, Tellico Plains, Tn.

Jeff and Kathi, I'm glad you made it back to Raindance safely. I also admire you for finding the positive side--and even a bit of humor-- in what must have been a long, stressful and heartbreaking trip. From what I've read, you shared a powerful spiritual connection with Windchill, and he with you. It wouldn't surprise me at all if from time to time you still felt his nuzzles and heard his contented sighs and friendly whinnies. You won't be alone. Windchill is with you, and the online community is with you. Hugs to you both.

Given our "all about me" society today it warms my heart to know that there are still caring people in the world. God bless you all. I know today Windchill is kickin and snortin and running like the wind. Love to all. Michele

I was so saddened to hear that Windchill did not make it. I, and I know many others, were praying for him but it was just not meant to be I guess. Windchill, may you be forever warm, munching on endless green fields of spring grass, thundering up above with our Heavenly Herd. You fought a good fight and we will not forget you. For the caretakers of Windchill, those who will most feel the loss...please visit www.hoofbeats-in-heaven.com for comfort. As one who had lost a horse in the past, this site was of great comfort to me and so I pass this on to you just in case you would like to talk to others who can empathize with the loss you have suffered. God Bless you all for the efforts you made to save Windchill. Patty in Rhode Island

02/03/08 Good Morning Jeff, I find myself still going to the computer to look for updates on Windchill and please know My heart and thoughts have been constantly with you and Kathi these past couple of days. I purchased 2 of Deb's posters of Windchill and I will put them in the feed room of my barn where I can say Good Morning and Good Night to Windchill every day when I am taking care of my horses. I feel that by putting his pictures in the feed room it is my way of knowing he will never be hungry again and he will always have shelter to protect him. I also purchased several other items that will keep Windchill near wherever I go. I was always taught that things happen for a reason and in Windchill's case even though we don't understand it now, hopefully his terrible life will bring a lot more awareness to the neglect and abuse horses suffer. I pray Windchill will not have suffered and died in vain and we can get tougher on boarding stables and neglectful owners. Thank you for fighting to save Windchill even though the odds were stacked against him. I would have done the same and gone to any lenghts to save him. He will be missed but never forgotten. Nancy, Tellico Plains, Tn.

Dear Jeff, When my dad was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, I was devastated. At first the prognosis was decent (for cancer): 5-6 years. It quickly became evident that the cancer was far more advanced than they initially thought, and there was no prognosis. My sister and I played "beat the clock" while trying to coordinate dad's care and tidy up his final affairs. I eventually left my family to care for Dad full time until he passed. While it seemed like forever, it was only 2 months. During that time, I too communicated thru the internet. Every night, I returned to my rented room and wrote to my pastor and my husband. It was so cathartic to release it all... the day's events needed to be let go so that I could try to sleep and prepare for whatever the next day held. I don't really remember much of that time period. My husband printed out all of my emails, and is keeping them for me for when I am ready to read them. I understand how desperately you can fight for someone to live, and the black hole in your life that they leave when they are gone. Even tho you and Kathi and the rest of the team love and support each other, I highly recommend grief counseling. Just as you could not care for Windchill alone, you will now need care for yourselves. He wasn't "just an animal". He was God's plan in the flesh. Thank you for sharing your joys and pain. Our tears are not just for Windchill, but for his caregivers as well. God bless you all.

So saddened to hear the news of Windchill's death. We were all praying he'd make a full recovery, but in some ways I guess he did. Please find comfort in knowing you did all you could for him, and that he is now at peace. You gave him some great memories to take with him to heaven, versus the last thoughts of being left to starve and die in the cold. God bless you all.

Dear Jeff, When I wrote last week, it was to send our prayers to Windchill, and our support to you and Kathi and the many other caregivers for the selfless efforts you were all making on Windchill's behalf. Today, I am writing to you in particular, to let you know that, yes, we ARE still listening, listening to your words as you begin your journey through grief and Windchill begins his journey on the Rainbow Bridge. We know all to well the sense of loss and emptiness and questioning and soul searching you are experiencing. We just lost our 15 year old yellow lab Sadie who had been my best little friend ever since she was a puppy. I, too, know the cathartic need to write to those that matter to me to tell them of the wonderful little creature that left us to cross the Rainbow Bridge. It does help and please know that Windchill, through your words, has touched the hearts and souls of countless numbers of people across the country. His story could not have been told by anyone as eloquently and as compassionately as you have done and I hope you retain all your writings on your web in some fashion so that people, like me, can return to them time and again. God brought Windchill to you for a reason, and I believe that reason was to help restore people's faith in the value of life, whether it be human or animal. These days there seems to be so many examples of how little value in life there is around the world. Yet, in one little corner of the world in Wisconsin, you and Windchill have lit a beacon of hope for all to see, that all life DOES matter. I am 62 years old, and never in my life have I witnessed such an inspirational story unfold as the one you have allowed us to follow. Thank you and God bless you,

Good morning Raindance Farms, as we return to our normal workday week all we want to say is STOP! DON'T YOU KNOW WINDCHILL DIED! How dare the world continue to march on when our hearts are broken and nothing will ever be the same!/ Well, that is what my mind is screaming but in fact, life does go on despite the heavy weight on our hearts. I believe Windchill would want us to celebrate his being, not his passing. We are forever changed by the lessons this bright little star taught us. I will concentrate on the one moment in time when he was ours and shared our world. Jeff and Kathi, thank you for making it so.

I just found out about Windchill's story one hour ago in an email from a friend. I've tried reading all I can about Windchill in that hour, looking at each picture and tears couldn't stay inside. I tried to find the actual fact about what caused him to be in the position to go thru this horrible experience and couldn't nail it down exactly but I got the impression he was neglected by his old owner. I don't have a solution for individuals who allow this to happen, but I pray for God to help all people to respect animals, pets or otherwise, even animals raised for food should be looked upon as a gift from God. In reading your website, you spoke about the suggestions some made about how you wasted resources to save Windchill. Forget them. I don't remember exactly what you said but you spoke about what our neglect says about us as humans, children of God, and how we accept the responsibility of caring over those left in our charge. And you're so right. We live in a great country and many of us have been given great opportunities. Therefore, much is expected of us - decency at least. Some of us have forgotten our golden rules in life. I know difficult situations find us all at one time or another, but reach out to someone. Some abuse animals out of neglect, some abuse them for a feeling of power or money. I'm not sure people can be re-educated about kindness to animals, living beings, when they have so little respect even for human life. I know I'm only one person but I know others like myself, yourself included. God bless you and all your wonderful volunteers for what you did. I wish I could have helped and hugged that little colt to let him know he mattered. He was a child of God also. I'm so glad you were there for Windchill. Thank you to all those who worked so diligently with you to try to save him. I believe the kindness you all shared with him will be remembered in heaven. I do hope justice will be served to prevent this from happening to others. I didn't even know about this poor angel until today but I'll never forget his story or your gallant efforts. Your words about what this says about us as people is so true and just yesterday, in our Sunday Commercial Appeal column "1000 words" here in Memphis, TN, another's words were used to describe the recent photograph of a rescued puppy matted , infected and blinded from neglect. Gandhi said: "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." "What does this face say about us?" I'm so sorry for your loss. I recently lost my puppyson of 14 years and I deeply miss him. He was not perfect, blind and deaf the last 4 years requiring some special care. It was easy to detect the love you had for Windchill. I know how much you must miss him and the opportunity to care for him even though he was broken and imperfect. The compassion you felt along with all those generous volunteers is very inspiring and hopefully it will inspire others in the future. Heartfelt Sympathy, Sheron

3/3/08 Good morning Jeff, Kathi and all of Windchills family. I guess there is some controversy whether Chief Seattle said these words or not. But I think that they are meaningful, whoever said them. "Man did not weave the web of life - he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone ; man would die from a great loneliness of the spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected. We are part of the earth and it is part of us. The flowers are our sisters ; the deer the horse and the great eagle these are our brothers. The rocky crests, the juices in the meadows, the body heat of the pony, and man -- all belong to the same family." To you all I thank you again for letting all of us become a part of Windchills beautiful tapestry. Paula

Windchill - you didn't deserve the hardships that were yours on earth. For a brief time you knew what love was and what should have been yours all along. I am so happy that you knew they were taking the best care of you and trying to save your sweet life. You are safe now, and hopefully running free like you should have been able to on earth - playing, kicking up, running with your horse friends. I emplore your "temporary" owners to use whatever funds they have to prosecute the previous owner and the barn owners where you were boarded, to the fullest extent of the law, and to use any remaining funds in your memory to save other horses in a similar position. The use of Windchill's name should be synonimous with extreme bravery and determination to succeed against all the odds. Windchill - you were a gift that was rejected until you found Raindance and the herioc people who worked so hard for you for such a brief span of time. You tried so hard, but in the end it was not to be. I hope that your current owners can rise above the grief and forgive themselves - they tried so hard to save you. God Bless them for their efforts. I hope that the wonderful painting that was auctioned off and donated can be made into a print that we can "buy" to raise funds in future for other similarly placed and unfortunate horses. May God Bless you in heaven Wind Chill.

After reading your site... Just wanted to say thank you for loving Windchill, only positive things comes from what you all have been through, you all fought the good fight. There are no wrongs here for you, only rights. God Bless you all that cared for him, I pray that you are comforted by the thoughts and prayers being sent your way. You did the right thing. You gave it your all, as hard as it is, this is the way it was meant to be, we mortals can only begin to imagine how lives have changed because of Windchill and you all. His fight and yours have touched so many, we can be bitter or we can use this to make a difference to make this world even in small small way a better place for our furry souls. There is a Rainbow Bridge, where the ones that have gone on ahead wait for us, it does not end right here and now, His spirit will be with all of you forever. He is free and whole again and he is thanking you for all that you did. God Bless

Jeff and all: I know we all keep coming back to see how everyone is doing. How are Walker and Olivia doing, they gave companionship and warmth, Kisses and the other horses who gave kisses and nickers of encouragement to the little guy. Some animals accept the passing of a friend, others take some time to understand and accept. Know this, Windchill is not in the creamatorium, he is not in the ashes or the urn you will bring back, he is now free, a spirit forever, finally knowing and understanding the unconditional love and caring...and I truly believe he will visit again, from time to time, just to 'let ya know he is still around.' To say thanks, but more importantly, to let you and all of us know he is really ok and truly grateful. Enjoy yourself Windchill, run free. Jeanne 03/03/08

I sent of a card today to offer my sympathies and to donate for the Windchill Foundation. I'm glad that you are thinking about keeping a website going because checking on Windchill was getting to be a part of my daily routine. I knew I would be sad if he didn't make it but I never knew that I would hurt so bad. I've loved a lot of critters in my life and I'm glad to add Windchill and you guys to the list. There are some people who think that an animals life isn't as important as a humans but I think we're all sharing this planet together and we're all equally important in God's eyes. I hope that is something people will learn from this little guys short but purposful life. Bless you all!

So very sorry for the loss of your brave Windchill. He had such a big heart and was a fighter to the end. Many thanks to all of you who loved him and valiantly tried to save his life. I know that he loved you too and appreciated your making him comfortable, caring for him, but most of all, for giving him lots and lots of love. Though the voice is quiet, his spirit echoes still. God Bless you for all for what you did for Windchill.

My heart sunk and my eyes filled with tears when I read your entry about "our" beloved Windchill. I call him "ours" because he had worked his way into all of our hearts and being animal lovers, felt as though he belonged to all of us. I had high hopes, as I know hundreds of others did as well, that he would pull through and be a spokeshorse for others in the future. But God had other plans for him. However, due to the care, love and tenderness shown to him by you and your wonderful team, Windchill had his faith in mankind restored. Thank you, all!

..When you write from the heart,the words are pure.We are much richer inside because of WindChill...the world is a better place to be. After I read "WindChill's letter to children",the tears started streaming again.It is a beautiful and poignant piece of prose because of the ABSOLUTE PURITY.The honesty and emotion scream out.The feelings that grew day by day,hour to hour,moment to moment about this magnificent colt will never leave us. We will carry them in our heart and soul forever. They are a part of us.Someday soon,I will make the trip to Raindance Farms and pay my respect.The "LETTER TO CHILDREN" leaves me with a sense of peacefulness.The terrible sadness and heartache are not gone....but it is tempered with a sense of beauty even in death.The beauty comes from the Spirit and Will Wind Chill had and the Unselfishness and Compassion so many gave. They let him know and feel inside what true love is in its purest form.He died knowing the good of the world.

I don't how to begin to say how sorry I am. Bless baby Windchill. I just found out about Windchill Thursday. Windchill died peacefully, knowing how much he was loved. He knew how much you and all his caretakers loved him. At least he didn't die in a cold pasture, all alone, thinking this is how people are. I am so sorry.

Don't Cry for the Horses by Brenda Riley-Seymore Don't cry for the horses That life has set free A million white horses forever to be. Don't cry for the horses Now in God's hands As they dance and they prance To a heavenly band. They were ours as a gift But never to keep As they close their eyes Forever to sleep. Their spirits unbound On silver wings they fly A million white horses Against the blue sky. Look up into heaven You'll see them above The horses we lost The horses we loved. Manes and tails flowing They gallop through time They were never yours They were never mine. Don't cry for the horses They will be back someday When our time has come They will show us the way. Do you hear that soft nicker Close to your ear? Don't cry for the horses Love the ones that are here.

I just found your site through one of my MSN groups, and I am in tears. What a brave little soul Windchill was. How someone could be so cruel as to let him get that bad is beyond being human. He didn't deserve to suffer in the cold with no food. Poor little guy. May he rest in peace in green pastures with the warm sun shining on his furry little face. I didn't know him but just reading his story has touched me deeply. I will say a prayer for you dear Windchill, that you are no longer in pain and that you are happily running free with friends on the other side of the bridge.

We love you guys. You are certainly right, this whole worldwide family aches right along with you. I was just as sure as you were, that little Windchill would pull through, with all of us pulling for him. His story was heart wrenching and then took that mythical turn. He will be in our hearts forever, and the story will go on and on, about the little colt that almost froze in the field that coldcold winter. We will tell the story, and smile.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Thank you Jeff, Kathi, and everybody for all you did and your deep devotion to WindChill. Thank you, Jeff, for all your postings to keep the world informed. And for still writing. I, too, keep coming back to the Raindance site because we are now a family. I am wheelchair-bound and also need people to help me stand up. Maybe I loved him so much because I could relate to some of his needs and to the love he must have felt for his devoted caregivers. Althogh his stall is empty, WindChill's not really gone; he's still drawing us close.
